On August 25th, after months of behind the scenes discussions, Colorado College and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts center announced an historic alliance to integrate the FAC into the college. The announcement came after prolonged financial challenges at the arts center, stemming in part from a $30 million renovation in 2006.

91.5 KRCC is partnering with KCME on an upcoming special looking at the historic alliance between The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and Colorado College. In this hour-long program, we aim to explain the deal, provide some background on the history and significance of Fine Arts Center, and ask what it will mean for the future of the arts in southern Colorado. 

But we need your help.
