The Colorado Arts Caucus formed in 2018, supporting the arts landscape by working with legislators that share our passion. Caucus meetings are open to the public.

In the FY19 session, the Colorado Arts Caucus held three convening’s with the topics “Arts in Education,” “Arts and the Economy,” and “Arts and Culture,” hosted by Opera Colorado. We had amazing attendance by our Legislative Arts Champions – the following legislators were present, make sure you thank them and follow them on social media.

  • Rep Leslie Herod
  • Rep Alex Valdez
  • Rep Daneya Esgar
  • Rep Kerry Tipper
  • Rep Adrienne Benavidez
  • Rep Susan Lontine
  • Sen Nancy Todd

During the FY20 session the Caucus met once in March to express support for the Rural Arts Bill.

Please watch for our next Colorado Arts Caucus Meeting. Your presence speaks volumes. The time you spend with your elected officials can be invigorating, as they share your interest in the arts and are looking for input on key issues that may arise during the legislative session. We invite you to be a part of the dialogue and provide your perspective.
