Denver printmaker Leon Loughridge, whose work hangs throughout the Broadmoor Hotel

Beginning with the 4th of July weekend, in conjunction with the Broadmoor Hotel, Broadmoor Galleries in Colorado Springs hosted its 2nd annual Broadmoor Art Experience. Originally expanded off the 2018 Plein Air Weekend, the show now takes place over the course of four weekends throughout the month of July with artists working each weekend in a variety of mediums.

Each weekend 15-20 artists set up throughout the Broadmoor Properties, creating new pieces on site while being available to visit with guests and collectors. Viewers watched the magic of art making as blank canvases were filled with paint and mounds of clay transformed while artists’ visions came to life. As guests strolled the historic property they saw clusters of artists staged throughout the resort. The event was free and open to art lovers of all ages.
