About Us

The Office of Arts and Culture believes creative thinking and support of our rich cultural community is an enduring foundation of our society as it drives our local economies and provides meaning, enjoyment, purpose, and identity in our everyday lives.
Brighton has a mix of urban, semi-urban, and rural hubs, together with a fast growing population and a multitude of cultures. Brighton has accepted the challenge of laying a foundation for arts, culture, and tourism, while creating a heritage that is sustainable and leads to progressive development. 

The Office of Arts and Culture continues to collaborate with Anythink Library, The Armory Performing Arts Center, Brighton Cultural Arts Commission, Brighton City Council, Scientific Cultural Facilities District, School District 27J, Brighton Special Events Division and state and national organizations. 

The 2015 Arts & Culture Symposium is made possible with the support and generous grant provided by the Brighton Lodging Tax Committee. The symposium planning committee includes David Gallegos, Laurie Maier, Zachary Reece, Gary Montoya and Kristen Chernosky.
