On Monday's "The Extra", we brought attention to an important collaboration just announced in conjunction with Arts Month 2020. It's the Avenue Creative Circuit, a new joint effort designed to bring attention to the "circuit" of arts offerings in three main geographical areas: Downtown Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City. This Creative Circuit represents our region's highest concentration of historic and creative experiences -- museums, galleries, boutiques, businesses, public art and more. The Circuit will be a tool to help creatives and entrepreneurs, residents and visitors work together to create a new heritage. Guests Claire Swinford, Director of Urban Engagement for the Downtown Partnership, and Doug Price, CEO and Executive Director for VisitCOS chatted with host Shannon Brinias about the joint effort, and the Circuit's Solidarity Mobile Mural Project. More information can be found at creativecircuit.org. You can also find out all about Arts Month by going to ArtsOctober.com brought to you by Peak Radar.
