Free Days at the Arts Center

Second Sundays at the Arts Center

The Sangre de Cristo Arts Center and Buell Children’s Museum offer an unforgettable experience for those who visit, and the second Sunday of every other month during 2018 offers free basic admission.*  

Free Second Sundays in 2018 are February 11, April 8, June 10, August 12, October 14, and December 9.

Community access and inclusivity is very important to us.  Together, with the generous supporters of these access days, we are strengthening and elevating our community. The Arts Center is grateful for all the donors, members, and supporters who make the sharing of our permanent collections, exhibitions, and programs available to visitors from around the world.   

I have 3 kids. 7 years old to 3 years old and they all had a blast when we visited yesterday. 2 hours later they still didn't want to leave.  The Family Free Day was a great opportunity for us to see what the Arts Center has to offer too. There were tons of volunteers on-hand and I loved that they were very aware of what the kids were doing. They also have a nice little Mother's Room on the second floor for breastfeeding moms!  - Erin F.

First Fridays at the Arts Center

Pueblo has a booming Creative Corridor which participates in First Friday Art Walks on the first Friday of the month.  The Sangre de Cristo Arts Center offers free access to the seven fine art galleries inside the Helen T. White Building from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  During these nights, visitors are invited on a self-guided tour of the art galleries, restaurants, and businesses located within the Creative Corridor in Downtown pueblo. Events on these nights celebrate the culture that makes Pueblo so special - and one of only 12 certified creative districts in Colorado.
