Lunch & Learn: Connecting to Local Arts, Past & Present - CSPM

Lunch & Learn: Connecting to Local Arts, Past & Present

Learn something new on your lunch break! During a CSPM Lunch & Learn program join a content expert to get a behind-the-scenes look into a fascinating subject. Take a deep dive into a variety of topics explored in CSPM’s exhibits and beyond.


People have been inspired to make art in the Pikes Peak region for hundreds of years. As part of the 10th annual local celebration of Arts Month, explore a few historical examples of creativity in the region, get a run-down of some of the present-day momentum in the arts community, and learn how the Cultural Office works to keep you connected to the arts. With an assembly of 400 arts and cultural groups, the creative sector continues to be critical in telling and shaping the story of our area.


Jonathan Toman builds local and tourist arts audiences, and the Pikes Peak region’s visibility as an arts destination, using the marketing, communications, and storytelling platforms of the Cultural Office and its partnerships. To that end, he spearheads the Cultural Office’s flagship cultural promotion & tourism program, Peak Radar – the local creative sector’s most powerful promotional tool. An experienced storyteller and program manager (and Pikes Peak region native), Jonathan enjoys amplifying and illustrating the value of the region’s arts sector…and saying all puns that occur to him.

Bring your questions and ideas for this insightful conversation over lunch at the CSPM Annex (Plaza of the Rockies) – 121 S. Tejon St., Suite 100. Seating is limited. Reservations are required. You may reserve a free ticket (feel free to bring your own lunch!) or pay for one of four boxed lunch options from Panera*. We are not able to make any substitutions to the boxed lunch options.
