ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE BCA’s artist-in-residence program offers regional, national and international artists of all disciplines an opportunity to focus on process rather than product while engaging with the local community in a meaningful way. Visiting artists live and work for 4-6 weeks in the Breckenridge Arts District, an intimate campus of historic structures that house studios and workspaces. During their stay, they partner with a local organization to explore a place-based thematic narrative— whether that means interpreting the spectacular mountain settings, rich local history, or risk-taking, pioneering spirit that built Breckenridge and continues to this day; or focusing on an environmental or social topic important to the community. Artists extend their practice beyond the studio walls to engage the public through workshops, demonstrations, lectures, open studios and public art projects, and culminate their stay with a presentation in collaboration with their local partner. The artist-in-residence program is a partnership between Breckenridge Creative Arts and the Saddle Rock Society.

MAKESHIFT OLD MASONIC HALL | THU, DEC 14 + JAN 11 + FEB 8, 6-8 PM Presented by Breckenridge Creative Arts breckcreate.org

MakeShift is a monthly makers’ night for adults featuring projects with guest makers and other DIY-inspired activities at the Old Masonic Hall. Admission is free and on a first-come, first-served basis.



EXHIBITIONS BCA’s exhibition program is a contemporary series of seasonally rotating installations, events and interventions employing visual art, performance, film, digital media and social practice. Each exhibition is thoughtfully curated with an underlying theme or story that responds to the unique needs, beliefs and aspirations of Breckenridge and surrounding mountain communities, reflective of our rich local history, spectacular natural playground and love of outdoor adventure, and our concerns for environmental sustainability, physical and mental well-being, and social equity. Exhibitions are designed to be accessible to and inclusive of all ages, cultures and creeds who make up our diverse population of local residents and visiting guests. Through creative partnerships with local organizations, BCA seeks to strengthen our sense of place while diversifying guests’ understanding of art to include the full spectrum of contemporary practices, including multidisciplinary works that cut across music, dance, film, spoken word, literary and visual arts, education and the creative and technology sectors. With art as a catalyst, we aim to inspire a range of reactions—from fun, lighthearted participation to deep reflection and dialog around important topics—in a way that honors, challenges and ultimately contributes to our collective identity.
