A new addition to Steamboat's art scene this summer, the artLine Shuttle, will take riders on a tour of Steamboat's art spots. The free shuttle will run every Thursday, leaving the Stockbridge Multi-Modal Transit Center at 11:30 am and circling through the tour route until 7:30 pm.
There are over 40 featured locations along the way, including Centennial Hall's City Art Collection, The Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts at the Depot, Thomas D. Mangelsen's Images of Nature, the Yampa River Botanic Park, The Portfolio Collection, River Art Studio, Torian Plum Plaza ArtWALK, Mad Creek Gallery, Two Rivers Gallery, White Hart Gallery, Into The West, Wild Horse Gallery and a variety of unique retail establishments, cafes and restaurants. Different locations each Thursday will sponsor scheduled open houses or events, such as demonstrations, exhibits, musical performances or special sales. A comprehensive calendar is available online at www.artlinksteamboat.org and also will be available in the participating businesses.
ArtThursday brochures will be available at 70 locations throughout Steamboat and on the shuttles, describing the artLine's stops as well as a list of all the businesses participating in artLink, the artLine Shuttle's sponsoring organization. Steamboat Springs Transit has also added artLine's routes to its existing bus brochures, which are available on all city buses.
