Help us Win!
Our arts scene make be compressed into a tight space, but that only brings our community closer together. If you also think that Manitou Springs has the best small town art scene in America, you can vote right here.

We’re proud to be nominated among these 20 small towns, each with a population of fewer than 30,000 people (as of the last census). As the writer notes:

Sitting at the base of Pikes Peak is the tiny town of Manitou Springs, a resort town ever since the area’s mineral-rich waters were discovered in the 1870s. The small downtown area is filled with art galleries and eclectic boutiques. The Manitou Art Center features a maker space for digital artists and hosts courses in both traditional and non-conventional visual arts.

You can vote once per day until polls close on Monday, April 26 at noon ET.
