Colorado Creative Corridor

The National Governors Association is encouraging governors to look toward the arts as a way to stimulate small-town economies.  

Carbondale, Salida, Crested Butte, Paonia and Ridgway are all certified creative districts here on Colorado’s Western Slope. This means they’ve been recognized by the state as having a concentration of arts organizations and a plethora of cultural opportunities. They’ve joined forces with the Colorado Tourism Office to comprise the new Colorado Creative Corridor.
