Holiday Culinary Art Walk Fund-Raiser. Every December SPACe joins other La Veta non profits and retail establishments to raise funds for youth oriented art activities among many local groups. The COVID pandemic forced the cancellation of the event this year, but donations are still needed. Each event attendee in normal years paid $25 per person for a ticket. We are hoping that everyone who has attended in the past will instead make a donation. 



There is always something to be done. Please email us at, to see how you can help. 


Right now we need a local La Veta person to commit to snow shoveling during the winter. A tech savvy persons to help with producing/editing videos, and solving social media problems. Many other opportunities are available- coordinating art shows (intake and hanging). And daily maintenance including help with mailings, changing light bulbs, cleaning, etc.

Spanish Peaks Arts Council (SPACe)

  • Spanish Peaks Arts Council (SPACe) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) member-supported Huerfano County Community of artists and art loving residents dedicated to the support of the arts and art education in the Spanish Peaks region of Southern Colorado. SPACe serves our community through promoting the arts, particularly the visual arts, through art education programs, workshops, and display space at our Gallery & Gift Shop building in La Veta. We believe strongly that the arts improve communities by improving the lives of individuals engaged in creative activities, in the areas of personal growth, social connection, better work/life balance and economic benefits. We encourage both beginning and expereinced artists to broaden their horizons in their creative practice. We particularly believe in the benefits of art education for youth and sponsor the annual Spring Student Art Show and Youth & Teen Art Workshops in the summer.
