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 Exhibit through October 31

Open to the Public 

About the exhibit

This month’s artists’ exhibit features works from Daniel Strawn. Having grown up in an artists’ family, Strawn was always influenced and educated in modern art and history. Having previously pursued a career in antique restorations and furniture design, the last few years has seen a cascade of drawings which became a meditation practice and a way of flow: drawing from the inside out, images appearing on paper without thinking, a spontaneous pencil dance and other media combined. View the entire exhibit online as well at Paquette Gallery Arts.
