Enter Your Best Artwork into the Inaugural Show at the Pollinate Biennial Arts Festival

Looking for some excitement? Pollinate is a biannual arts collaboration that convenes arts organizations in Southern Colorado to explore one compelling theme through exhibitions, events, and experiences every two years. Events include themed exhibitions, live performances, panel discussions, and more. The Manitou Art Center is a proud participant in the Pollinate Biennial Arts Festival, sponsored by GOCA and UCCS!

This year's theme is "Time", and accordingly we will be soliciting entries into our free, community-oriented gallery for this unique theme. The title of the show, "Tempus Edax Rerum"; is from Ovid's Metamorphoses, and translates to "Time, Devourer of all Things".

Participation in the themed show is entirely optional, and as always, anyone is welcome to submit work. Due to the overwhelming support and popularity of the 1st Amendment show, we are asking artists to submit 2 pieces at a maximum.

Pollinate has experienced healthy growth in the Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs communities in its past three iterations, cross-pollinating audiences and elevating awareness of the arts in our region. Visit for details on specific exhibits and events at participating venues.

At Avalon Valley Apartments in Colorado Springs, Colorado, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
