Perhaps you’ve heard of Ira Glass and his little radio show “This American Life.” Now’s your chance to catch him in action. Glass is one of many artists slated to perform or present work during the inaugural Breckenridge International Festival of Arts (BIFA). He's slated to appear Aug. 22.
The festival, which starts Thursday and runs through Aug. 23, includes live music, speaker series, artist workshops, dance performances and even a public art installation of blue-painted trees.
“All of the programming within the arts festival is centered around this idea of environment, mountain culture, outdoors, that type of thing," BreckCreate CEO Robb Woulfe told CPR earlier this year.
The festival is part of the mountain town’s ambitious $25-million cultural plan.
