The CSWS is a museum, library and archive specializing in the history and cultures of the Southwest. Our mission is to connect people with opportunities to study and explore the area’s unique heritage. FLC students can gain hands-on training in collections preservation, exhibitions and public programs through academic internships and other employment opportunities.
Catch a show
Southwest Colorado's premier performing arts venue holds shows throughout the year--from musical performances to acrobatics, dramatic readings to theatrical productions. With seating for up to 600 people, unobstructed visibility and crystal clear acoustics, and an elegant aesthetic, it is truly a lovely place to catch a show.
Our Theater Department holds productions throughout the year, and faculty and students in the Music Department also perform. Earn your hipster street cred when you see these rising stars before they're discovered.
Feast your eyes
