Grand Opening Celebration with Gerry Morrell
The Collective Community Arts Center

The Collective Community Arts Center

The Collective Community Arts Center will host its grand opening celebration and inaugural art show on Friday, February 17.  The event is free and open to the public.
 The Collective Community Arts Center, recently located in the rebuilt historic building at 201 N. Public Road, is home both to the City of Lafayette’s new arts center and the Arts and Cultural Resources Department.  Visitors at The Collective can expect to experience a welcoming, unpretentious place to engage in the arts through rotating exhibits, historic displays, networking opportunities, arts business development, social themes, lectures, film series, author readings, and other enlightening programs. The center’s name was carefully chosen to represent the collaboration of collectively working together to express and celebrate the community’s identity through art.

Off the Beaten Path

The Collective’s inaugural art show “Off the Beaten Path,” features the work of nature photographer Gerry Morrell. According to Morrell, a 3rd generation Coloradan, living in Colorado has given him a unique knowledge of the region and the Rocky Mountains.  This experience has allowed him to photograph not only familiar areas, but also the “back roads” where many of his best images have been captured. Morrell is also somewhat of a local celebrity, having served the community as the Fire Chief and firefighter for 40 years.  He is also the founder and owner of Lafayette’s family-run Morrell Printing Solutions.
