The Colorado Bluebird Project is a year long fundraising campaign to build a youth arts house on the Front Range of Colorado. The arts house, to be named the Bluebird Arts House, will offer free and reduced rate music and art lessons, as well as host community events.
Started as a mission of the Future Arts Foundation, the idea quickly spread though the state and is now backed by dozens of Colorado musicians, as well as local, national, and international musicians!
