About the Colorado Springs Portal

You can find the Portal at:

513 Manitou Avenue
Manitou Springs, CO 80829

The Manitou Art Center creates an environment in which artists, tinkerers, and collaborators flourish. Music, theatre, pottery, printmaking, and other loud, slightly dangerous and intensely messy events happen here daily. Locals and tourists alike flock to the galleries, studios, exhibition space, and classrooms.

The Portal is coordinated in Colorado by Imagination Celebration, a nonprofit connecting people of all ages to the brain-stimulating, life-enhancing, community-building power of creativity by inspiring artistic and intellectual curiosity; instigating community collaborations, and promoting life-long experiential learning to help us thrive in a changing world.  This pop-up public arts installation connects people of all walks of life around the globe - taking us to places that we may never travel to, other than through this Portal.  

One Imagination Celebration program, the What IF…Festival,  celebrates lifelong learning and engages the community with the innovation, creativity, and the entrepreneurial spirit of the Pikes Peak region.  The What IF… Festival, is a silo-busting, bridge-building, event fostering intellectual vitality by welcoming participants to creatively engage with businesses, nonprofits, artists, scientists, engineers, performers, athletes, educators, ranchers/farmers, architects, tinkerers, visionaries and students of all ages.  The What IF Festival was the first opportunity for public engagement with the Portal in Colorado Springs.
