Inspiring Women of Northern Colorado at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures

“Inspiring Women of Northern Colorado” opens from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2024, at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures with free admission as part of First Friday Art Walk. The Hall Gallery exhibit is curated by members of Living Her Legacy, a Fort Collins organization dedicated to recognizing the contributions of local women.

“The mission of Living Her Legacy is to inspire women and girls to discover themselves in the many talents, contributions and achievements of women, both past and present,” says Patti Smith, founder and executive director of the nonprofit organization. “This exhibit showcases 48 women who have made a difference in our community by demonstrating commitment, courage and resilience.”

As visionaries for change, the 48 honorees serve as role models for both women and girls, and nearly half of the women have ties to Colorado State University. The exhibition runs through May 25.

In conjunction with the display, “Meet Impactful Women of Fort Collins” will be presented by Smith from 6-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 21. The program will outline women’s impact in the community, and attendees will hear from Legacy honorees as well as girls who have participated in the education programs.

Admission to the presentation is $5 per person, and reservations are requested at Refreshments will be served, and registrants will enjoy free admission to the hall gallery exhibit as well as the museum’s other three galleries.
