Spruce Peak Arts is dedicated to using the inspiration and creativity of the performing arts to achieve our mission to inspire, educate and entertain. We deliver engaging experiences for all ages that connect the audience with the performing arts in deep, meaningful, and delightful ways.
ArtSmart is a series of arts education gatherings, talk-backs, and lectures for adults moderated by nationally and locally recognized artists and thinkers. It is an opportunity for art lovers to experience theatre behind the scenes and learn more from artists and performers. The lectures offer a depth of insight for learning and discovery by the participants as they experience the performance.
The ArtSmart series will focus on two of our subscription programs the Metropolitan Opera’s Encore showings in HD film and the Spruce Peak Chamber Music Society residency program.
The ArtSmart talks will provide context for the exploration of the composers, musicians, history, and the pieces performed with insights to enrich the listeners experience.
Spruce Peak Arts will build on our commitment to create an environment that fosters a deep connection to the world around us, to educate our audiences, and to encourage a spirit of inquiry and inspiration for participants.
Bring a brown bag lunch from Edelweiss Mountain Deli* with you and enjoy the discussions on stage.
The ArtSmart Series is one of the Spruce Peak Arts community and education programs and funded by our Community & Education Fund.
