Despite the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center's own cutbacks, the museum will offer free admission to active-duty military personnel and families starting today. As part of the Blue Star Museums program, the FAC joins 650 other museums around the country in giving discounts to the armed services from now until Sept. 5.
Active-duty Reserve and active-duty National Guard are eligible, as well as any other active-duty military ID holder and five immediate family members. Check to see if special exhibits and programs are included in the discount.
Also of note, the FAC's Lost Heroes Art Quilt will leave earlier than scheduled, on May 29, so it can be on display at Fort Carson on Memorial Day.
