Smokebrush came to life as a Community Arts Foundation in 1992. Involved in the local and professional theater scene, the foundation also spearheaded workshops, exhibitions, a Children's Theater series, world-class concerts and numerous community art projects.
In 1999 the foundation shifted gears to design and create the Uncle Wilber Fountain for the children of Colorado Springs, transforming the energy of Acacia Park.
In moving operations to the Depot Arts District in 2000, Smokebrush found a wonderful neighborhood to call home. We obtained a larger space in the historic Trestle Building in 2011 which we called Marmalade where we hosted an amazing variety of healing arts (yoga, meditation, ceremonies and kirtan).
