Ent Center for the Arts at UCCS

Celebrating Arts Month 2022

The Ent Center for the Arts is more than just a stunning building on the backdrop of the UCCS campus. This first-class arts facility, located on the University of Colorado Colorado Springs campus, serves the community as a hub for the arts and an inspiration in academics. The vision for the facility was and is to foster a creative environment to house arts that will serve the Pikes Peak region, allowing artists to inspire and amplify one another rather than compete against one another. Art brings together diverse peoples and ideas in ways no other discipline can, and the Ent Center will be a pillar of the arts community within Colorado Springs.

Lumberjacks in Love

THEATREWORKS: Ent Center for the Arts

Thru October 9

Lumberjacks living in semi-unwashed bliss find their rustic bachelor lifestyle disrupted by the arrival of a spunky mail order bride. The ensuing musical madness celebrates the flannels we wear, the families we choose, and the unexpected twists that just might change everything.

Lumberjacks in Love promises a heart of gold wrapped in layers of cross-dressing, mistaken identities, romantic entanglements, high-country hijinks, and of course more flannel than Breckenridge in September. Featuring actors playing their own musical instruments, it’s the best musical you’ll see about lumberjacks this year, featuring perhaps the only song you’ll ever hear about “a buncha naked lumberjacks chopping down trees.” Don’t miss out! More information about the production.

Gregg Deal: Esoo Tubewade Nummetu
(This Land Is Ours)

GOCA: Ent Center for the Arts, Mary Walsh Sharpe Gallery

Thru December 11, 2022

Gregg Deal (Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe) is a multi-disciplinary artist, activist, and self-described “disruptor” who lives and works in southern Colorado. A major solo exhibition at the Ent Center for the Art’s Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery site will feature new works in multiple series addressing Native identity and critiquing American society, politics, popular culture and history.

Deal’s art practice incorporates lifelong interests in punk music, street art and graphic styles, comic books and speculative superhero fiction. Deal presents a new paradigm that places the perception, narratives and voices of Indigenous people at the center of modern and historic storytelling, with romantic and damaging stereotypes of culture placed upon them upended and rejected by all. In “Esoo Tubewade Nummetu (This Land Is Ours),” Deal asserts that Native peoples and their cultures are still here and that we are all standing on the homelands of past and future Indigenous generations.
