Easy to find, reasonable and free parking and excellent content. I am not an "art person" as such but went in with some friends who are - so visited essentially for social reasons. I was pleasantly surprised to find the display areas were well lit, the place was quiet and invited a meditative contemplation. Later I found out that it used to be a church. I was not paying attention to the outside of the building as we walked in. Visit their website, http://foothillsartcenter.org, to get a sense of what special exhibits they might be having.

My friend and I happened upon the FAC while spending a couple of days in Golden. The Colorado Watercolor Society exhibit was going on, and it was fabulous. The Center was also advertising for an upcoming Degas exhibit.

I went to the Foothills Art Center to see the Chihuly exhibit. It is a tiny place with a limited parking capacity. The staff was not very friendly.

I highly recommend the Chihuly temporary exhibit! While small, the objects are stunningly beautiful, as one would expect from Dale Chihuly. All of the objects belong to one man, George R. Stroemple. The venue was once a Neo-Gothic style church and is interesting in its own right. Check out their website http://www.foothillsartcenter.org
