Arts & Culture is a division of Thornton Parks, Recreation and Community Programs. It was established in 2006 to offer community-based programs and year-round events  in partnership with other city departments and nonprofit organizations. With funding provided by the city, Adams County, and the Scientific Cultural and Facilities District (SCFD), Arts Thornton develops and presents art classes, camps, annual concert series and cultural events, exhibits and public art.

 

The Thornton Arts & Culture Center (TACC), located at 9209 Dorothy Boulevard, opened in 2011 and is the hub for performing and visual arts in Thornton. On any given day, you can view an exhibit in the OZ Gallery, rehearse with the local band or chorus, attend a camp or concert, enroll in an art class, or participate in annual cultural celebrations like Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Please visit the ArtsThornton Events Calendar to see what’s coming up next! 

Our Mission: Engage and celebrate a creative community.

Our Vision: A community that welcomes all forms of cultural expression.
