RENT GALLERY SPACE AT THE COMMMUNITY CREATIVE CENTER at the Historic Carnegie Building

200 Mathews, Fort Collins, CO 80521

The Community Creative Center at the Historic Carnegie Building (CCC) is owned and operated by the City of Fort Collins, managed through the Lincoln Center. The CCC is also home to Beet Street /Arts Incubator of the Rockies, as well as public gallery and performance spaces that are available to rent for exhibition, performance and presentation purposes.

The Center recognizes and promotes the synergistic and complementary aspects of a space that is shared by artists from various disciplines. Building tenants, clients and staff should be creative in capitalizing on this synergy and accommodating the logistical needs of multiple artists sharing a common space.

Artists may rent the space on a weekly basis for their own art exhibit, or on an hourly basis for an evening performance or presentation.

Volunteer Opportunities
 

Do you have a passion for art? Are you curious about how art is made, and what it means? Can you convey your enthusiasm for art of all kinds to people of all ages? If you've answered yes to these questions, you might consider being a volunteer for Lincoln Center Visual Arts programs.

There are two kinds of volunteer positions: Art Gallery Docents and Event Volunteers.

Art Gallery Docents

Docents assist our gallery visitors in appreciating the exhibitions featured in the Lincoln Center Art Galleries. They also help to keep the gallery and artwork safe and secure. The Lincoln Center will present approximately 9-12 exhibition periods each year in two gallery spaces. With each new exhibition, Lincoln Center staff will share information about the artists and artworks with our docents. Docents will become familiar with how exhibits are installed, meet some of the exhibiting artists in person, learn about art history and the artworks on display, and how to spark interest and appreciation for the art with visitors from Kindergarteners to senior citizens.

Docents must be able to make a one year commitment to this volunteer position. Most docent hours will be during evenings and weekends when performances and events are scheduled for the theaters and conference rooms. Docents will be scheduled about an hour before performances through intermission – approximately 2 hours. Other times will include 2-hour blocks on Saturdays, between noon and 6 p.m., and weekdays if school tours or conference events are scheduled.

The various trainings and gallery work will require the following commitments:

    Art Docent Orientation: 2-hour initial training and orientation mandatory for all docents.
    Exhibit Orientation: One or two 1-hour commitment with each new exhibition
    Docent Service: Minimum of one 2-hour commitment each month, typically weekends and/or evenings.

Visual Arts Event Volunteer

The Lincoln Center presents three events each year: ArtWear Fashion Week (every other year), and Fort Collins Studio Tour. We are also co-presenters of Articulture Fine Arts Festival and the Gallery of Trees. Volunteers are needed for each of these events and must also attend the Art Docent Orientation.

Volunteers for these events assist with setting up and/or cleaning up the event, and working throughout the day outdoors or indoors during the event. Responsibilities vary from dressing models for a fashion show, helping with sales and display of garments, providing hospitality for event artist and guests, moving heavy objects, and many other jobs. Typically these involve shifts of 4 hours or more over a course of 2 – 10 days.

If you enjoy working with all kinds of people, can maintain a helpful and happy spirit, and express enthusiasm for arts events to the public, this might be just the volunteer job for you. Visual Arts Event Volunteers should be available to work at least two events per calendar year.

Tentative 2013 Event Schedule(volunteer dates):

    ArtWear September 20-28
    KnitWear - September 22
    Fort Collins Studio Tour Preview Reception - June 14 Creative Garden August 23-24 (tentative) Gallery of Trees - Nov 8-15
