Cultivating and encouraging the
vitality of our community

A nonprofit organization located in Paonia, Colorado, the Blue Sage Center for the Arts is dedicated to providing community members with opportunities to create and experience art in all its forms. We offer a variety of expressive mediums – from classical and world music concerts to creative writing contest and readings – to suit the needs and interests of an increasingly diverse and artistic community. Today the Blue Sage serves about 10,000 residents of the North Fork Valley annually through classes, events, gallery exhibits, venue rentals and arts outreach into local schools.
