Sure Battlement Mesa and even Colorado's Western Slope isn't known as the "mecca" of performing arts. Nevertheless, we might surprise you. Of course, World Class performing arts is available in Denver...a comfortable three-hour interstate highway drive east of Battlement Mesa but our residents can also enjoy The Arts here on Colorado's Western Slope.
Denver is well-known for its Denver Performing Arts Complex - the largest performing arts complex under one roof, and the second-largest center of its kind based upon the number of venues and the seating capacity of the complex. The 12-acre complex with its ten unique performance facilities provide a continuous flow of top-quality entertainment and a great opportunity for our residents to visit the ciry for a weekend of performing arts enjoyment.
Performing arts are also available close to home. The Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra offers many performances throughout the year. Additional theater and music performances are offered locally at Colorado Mesa University, and other venues in Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs, Aspen and Vail.
