We can only boast 2 museums, but we CAN boast!
Our neighbor, and my dear friend, Linda Aguilar, recently gave a demonstration of horsehair basket weaving at the new Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, at it’s brand new location. The new museum promises a combination of history, science and culture, with, as before, lots of hands-on exhibits and activities.
Another favorite is the MOA, Fort Collins Museum of Art, housed in the old Post Office building in Old Town: it aims to ‘enrich the cultural life of the region and advance community understanding of the power of the visual arts to foster life-long learning, social interaction, and personal inquiry’. We have gone every year to check out the Masks exhibit and silent auction, in which over 150 local artists participate annually.
