Weehawken Creative Arts and Ridgway Chautauqua Scoiety are proud to be members of the Alpenglow Arts Alliance, a groundbreaking collaborative of nine arts organizations in Ouray County, working together to promote each other’s events and opportunities through a unified voice. 

Alpenglow Arts Alliance includes (Ouray County Performing Arts Guild, The Sherbino Theater, The Wright Opera House, Public Art Ridgway, Mountain Air Music Series, Ridgway Concert Series, The Ridgway Creative District, Ouray County Artists Association). We are similarly-oriented organizations who have formed and joined the Alpenglow Arts Alliance for the specific purpose of promoting arts for both local community development and to promote our region as a destination for visitors. A Memorandum of Understanding has been put into effect and the (now nine) organizations meet monthly for two hours per visit to talk calendars, promotions and communications. The major result to date has been a substantial and unified presence in print and digital mediums compared to previous years

The expectation is that the promotional arm of the alliance has the potential to cover the entire region, making the arts agencies and organizations of Western Colorado a visible force and destination.
