It was a joy to view the collection of the Museum of Friends. There were many pieces I enjoyed and we had an lovely curator who walked us through the entire exhibit.

This place is AMAZING. The first floor features traveling exhibits which are switched out every few months. The upper floor features a permanent collection and it is mind-blowingly amazing. It felt like I was swimming in art. Artists that I have heard of before, and many artists that I have never heard of before. A little local art, and a lot of New York art. You get a little taste of the Colorado communes from the '60s. Loads of fabulous printwork. Sculpture, pencil drawings, ink drawings, mixed media, collage, oils on canvas and other substrates, acrylics, photography, watercolor, even broken glass. There's also one whole room devoted to Hawaii and Pacific island art and craft, and stepping foot into this room felt like I was catapulted into another world. I can't believe that this quality, variety, and sheer volume of art is right here in downtown Walsenburg! Absolutely worth your while. You can book a tour through their website. Please be sure to make a monetary donation.
Randomly stopped in on our way from Colorado to New Mexico, so happy we did! Maria and Brent were so friendly and had a variety of works to check out! I would totally recommend stopping by if you’re ever in Walsenburg!
