Arts at a Glance
As pretty as its snow-covered mountains are, Steamboat is also one of the state’s premiere arts destinations, letting visitors take in everything from world-class paintings and landscape/wildlife photos to bronzes, jewelry, ceramics, furniture and more in an ever-growing array of galleries and other venues. You can also browse acclaimed international work, from tribal hand-woven rugs to etchings from master printers. Historic downtown boasts an art museum and a dozen galleries, all showcasing Steamboat’s best.
“Steamboat’s roots are deeply embedded in arts and culture with festivals, great galleries, a large number of artists and authors living in the area, and more. Steamboat is rich with arts and culture,” says Kim Keith, executive director, Steamboat Springs Arts Council
Art Walk: One of the best venues to see Steamboat’s wealth of artistic talent is to join the First Friday Art Walk, a tour organized by local gallery owners from 5 to 8 p.m. on the first Friday of every month. Nearly 20 galleries, businesses and other venues participate in the event, which showcases local art with drinks, appetizers and live music. First Friday Art Walk maps are available at downtown art galleries and the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association. Info: steamboatspringsarts.com
