Help us continue building our statewide network!

One of the main goals of RAN is to build and foster a statewide network of artists, arts organizations, and arts supporters throughout Colorado’s rural communities who face unique challenges that many large cities do not. The website is still in its very early stages, and we are in the process of building it gradually and steadily, but we need your help!

Ideally, we envision this website as a resource for both rural artists and arts organizations, and a sort of portal to facilitate information sharing among the rural arts communities across the state. To this end, we are currently collecting information on organizations, events, practicing artists and any additional helpful resources in your area to be included in the site. If you would like to be a part of this effort and/or be included in our website, please email Leah Horn at

Welcome to our brand new website!

Just in time for the New Year, we’ve launched our Rural Arts Now website for artists, arts organizations, art lovers, and all of our friends around the state who have been encouraging us to provide this resource.

We hope that the site will serve as a place for you to stay up to date on what is happing in your area and help spread the word about the many talented artists throughout Colorado!
