400 North College Avenue
Fort Collins CO 80524

Featuring work by Caleb Cole, Zackary Drucker, Ervin A. Johnson, Laurence Rasti, and Krista Wortendyke
At the heart of every political and social movement is a question about who deserves to have power and control, whether over territory, access, rights, or freedoms. Around the world, we are witnessing struggles connected to race, sexuality, gender, and class. The artists in this exhibition ask questions about who has agency and in what situations, working from their own experiences within these complex social and political forces.

1879 Avery House Exhibit: “The Margaret Brown Collection–A Legacy of Fashion and Friendship”

Sat, Feb 6, 2016 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

this is a recurring event

A new exhibit opening February 6 at the 1879 Avery House in Fort Collins showcases a remarkable collection of a century of fine womenswear, mid-1800s to mid-1900s. The Margaret Brown Collection is among the largest and most important donations of historic costume to Poudre Landmarks Foundation (PLF), which manages the Avery House. Visitors will see a beautiful, extensive range of fashion, from evening gowns to sportswear, outerwear to undergarments, hats to shoes.

Margaret Brown’s lifelong love of vintage fashion resulted in an extensive collection that she used for charity fashion shows. Brown, who currently lives in Denver, had been on the lookout for a suitable place to donate her collection. After seeing the Rocky Mountain PBS Arts District feature on the Avery House’s 2013 costume exhibit, “Fashions of an Age: The Downton Abbey Era,” Brown contacted PLF about donating her collection. PLF is delighted and honored to share, through this exhibit, Margaret Brown’s legacy of fashion and friendship.

The exhibit is presented by the Avery House Guild and Poudre Landmarks Foundation. Visitors can view the exhibit during regular Avery House tour hours, Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 p.m. The exhibit runs February 6 to July 10. Free admission; donations appreciated.

Fearless: Fort Collins Symphony Masterworks 3 Concert

19th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count and Suet Give-Away

Sun, Feb 7, 2016 through Mon, Feb 15, 2016 All Day

Audubon Rockies, the Regional Office of the National Audubon Society, has partnered with two great stores in Fort Collins, Wild Birds Unlimited and Jax Ranch and Home, to celebrate this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count (Feb 12-15) by giving participants (one per family) a free block of suet to attract birds to your home, office, or school. Simply come in to the Wild Birds Unlimited or Jax Ranch and Home from February 7th through the 15th during store hours to receive your gift while supplies last. Suet is a combination of fat and seed that attracts winter hardy birds such as chickadees and woodpeckers who stay in Colorado unlike many migrating birds.

The Great Backyard Bird Count takes place each Presidents Day Weekend and is a free, fun, and easy event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at birdcount.org .

Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from beginning bird watchers to experts, and you can participate from your backyard, or anywhere in the world.
