About the SteamPlant Event Center


The SteamPlant Event Center, located in the heart of scenic Salida, Colorado, hosts over 500 events each year, from private weddings to conferences, community meetings, concerts, conventions, and more. Originally built in 1887 to house the Salida Edison Electric Light Company, the historic building was purchased exactly a century later by the City of Salida. The SteamPlant is a vibrant, thriving part of our community that includes a theater venue, outdoor sculpture garden, art galleries, riverside plaza, conference rooms, and a spacious ballroom.

Paquette Gallery Exhibition


Artist Reception on May 14 from 5:00-7:00 pm

Open to the Public

Through the end of May the current art exhibit from Dale Barth features a retrospective of his works using the “Alla Prima” method in which each artwork is begun and completed in one sitting. Over the years, Barth has done solo and art shows around the country from Aspen to New York City and in Chicago and Denver. With drawings in both graphite and ink along with portraits and landscapes in acrylics, the artist hopes the viewing of his art is ‘a fulfilling experience, seeing the beauty in life and living in the moment.’ View the entire exhibit online as well at Paquette Gallery Arts.
