SMALL TOWN, BIG TALENT

Situated high in the Rocky Mountains of southwest Colorado sits the tiny town of Rico, a proud artisan community of 256 people. The Artists of Rico, Colorado (ARC) are working to nurture a sense of fellowship among the area’s talented artists and craftspeople.

Located 26 miles southwest of Telluride, we share in the wondrous beauty of the area, with added uniqueness of privacy and isolation. Positioned at 8827 ft. in elevation, things are quiet here in Rico, until you step into our artisans’ workshops where the hum of action and creativity goes late into the night. We encourage you to learn more about our local artists and visit our vibrant community.
