WELCOME!

This October, arts & culture takes center stage throughout Colorado Springs and across the Pikes Peak region, as our creative community celebrates Arts Month 2021!

Orchestrated annually by the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, Arts Month elevates the visibility of arts & culture across El Paso and Teller Counties by showcasing local talent, providing opportunities for arts advocacy, supporting innovative cross-sector community collaborations, and creating new avenues for arts engagement and cultural enrichment.

Everything that’s happening this October can be found from the HIGHLIGHTS and EVENTS tabs, above. There are more Arts Month opportunities to discover from the GIVEAWAYS and MERCH tabs. And, you’ll find additional information ABOUT Arts Month as you continue to explore this website.

Despite the challenges and uncertainties caused by the pandemic, our 8th annual Arts Month celebration is shaping-up to be one of our biggest and best ever! Throughout the entire month, we invite you to enjoy the amazing talent and diversity of our creative community, and encourage you to use the information and opportunities on this website to “have one new cultural experience with family or friends this October!”

    ARTIST-OF-THE-DAY PROFILE

    Trip Uhault

    Date Featured: October 21, 2021

    Trip Uhalt started doing standup comedy at Jeff Valdez’ Comedy Corner here in Colorado Springs in the mid-80’s. He’s opened for Sinbad, Judy Tenuta, Pat Paulson, Jeff Allen, and more. He stepped away from professional comedy to start a career in broadcasting. Uhalt has produced thousands of TV commercials and done documentaries around the world, chronicling the life of Jesus and the Apostles. He also owns and runs Spot On Productions, a multimedia production company, and teaches multimedia and broadcasting at UCCS and PPCC part time as well. Trip started Oxymorons Comedy in September 2018. They are an award-winning, clean and family friendly, Christ following, standup and improv comedy group dedicated to putting the “joy of the Lord” in people’s hearts and raising money for charities; demonstrating at every laugh-filled show that God is not just the God of “thou shalt nots” but also of great joy, love, Grace, forgiveness and Salvation through His Son, Jesus.
