Art exhibits, chamber music concerts, the Winter Farmers’ Markets, craft shows, and First Night Fort Collins have all used the space. Please be aware that use of the public ground floor area cannot impede regular business activity or pedestrian traffic. The soaring atrium can make sound a challenge.
