610 ARTS COLLECTIVE
610 Arts Collective is the result of two passionate arts organizations working together to create a shared vision of bringing arts, enrichment, and Chautauqua style learning to the Ridgway, CO area.
610, as we call it, is the shared office space of Ridgway Chautauqua Society (which owns The Sherbino Theater and the 610 Clinton Street buildings) and Weehawken Creative Arts. These sister organizations, while separate in status and mission, collaborate to offer a range of programs at the theater, the 610 space and other local spaces. 610 is also an exhibition space for local and visiting artists, and a classroom space for programs. As of June 2019, The 610 Arts Collective now houses a gallery shop with offerings from local and visiting artists.
….A serious movement is afoot within Ouray County for arts organizations to cooperate in the areas of event planning, scheduling, marketing, coordination, and event staffing. Willing to lead, Weehawken-RCS/Sherbino took the spirit of collaboration a step further and entered into an Agreement for Collaboration, Cooperation & Cost Sharing (MOU) in the fall of 2014. Now entering our sixth year, Weehawken Creative Arts and the RCS/Sherbino share a staff of three, share space and systems, are developing mutually beneficial programming, and are taking advantage of economies-of-scale efficiencies wherever possible.
