Peak Radar Minute: Virtual Edition

Mar 28, 2020

As the local arts community adapts to the new limitations on social gathering and public space during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region is pleased to introduce Peak Radar Virtual This brand new portal of the region's online cultural calendar, peakradar.com, now features multimedia, and virtual experiences from a growing list of local organizations and artists, plus DIY (do – it – yourself) home experiences to bring creativity into the living room like never before.
