Florence has much news to share: A Military Art Show in Florence

The Florence Merchants Association is sponsoring the First Annual Armed Forces Art Show in May. It is open to all active duty, Veteran, and retired military personnel in the state of Colorado. They are excited to have this opportunity to show our appreciation to our military men and women.

This is an exhibit to showcase the artistic talents of active duty, Veterans and retired military personnel in Colorado. Hosted by the Florence, Colorado Downtown Merchants Association, this exhibit will be displayed in the storefronts of participating businesses. The Show will open with a reception(s) on Saturday, May 13th and will run through Memorial Day, May 29th.

The Florence Merchants would like to thank and honor military personnel during the month that observes Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day. We know there is some great artistic talent out there and we would like the opportunity to share it with public.
