COVID-19 Updates

In response to heightened concerns relating to the spread of COVID-19 and the health and well-being of our public, the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center and Buell Children's Museum are open with limited capacities.  Physical classes with limited students are now offered as well.  Masks and temperature checks are required for all campus visitors.

We are 5-Star Certified with Pueblo County. The Arts Center continues to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness during the COVID-19 pandemic. Masks are required for all staff members and for guests 3 years of age and older. The Arts Center facilities staff conduct hourlysanitaion sweeps and each department has been equipped with hand sanitizer.

Please be aware that Pueblo City and County officials issued statements on November 20, 2020, encouraging compliance to prevent the spread of COVID.

If numbers continue to rise, the County will be forced to implement stricter guidelines. We will continue monitoring the situation. 

If the Arts Center must make changes to our capacity allowances, a formal notice will be issued on this page.

Thank you for your understanding.

What this means for the Arts Center

This closure has already had a significant effect on the Arts Center's ability to earn income. We welcome and encourage contributions to help us sustain through this outbreak and continue to fulfill our mission in Southern Colorado. If this is something you care about, you can help us by donating here.  See how the CARES Act impacts charitable giving for 2020.

In these times, we are grateful for our generous donors and the vibrancy of our community. Stay inspired by checking our social media where we are posting images from our permanent collection and other inspiring content.  You may also request a take home art kit from the Buell Children's Museum.

Ultimately, our goal is to be sure the Arts Center remains a viable institution once it reopens to the public. The mental health of the community will be in great need of the healing power of art in order to recover from the widespread grief caused by the Covid-19 epidemic. The Arts Center has had success in providing relief for those who are going through traumatic experiences or need help to process feelings. Art has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety and can actually raise serotonin levels. Southern Colorado deserves to heal and grow, and we are a partner in that process
