Manitou Art Center.
It’s been one year in the making, said Natalie Johnson, executive director at the Manitou Art Center, with 185 suggested names rolling in.
Warren Epstein, former GO! editor at The Gazette, is the man behind the winning name.
“It took me three years after I moved here to go in the Business of Art Center,” says Natalie Johnson, executive director of the Manitou Art Center. “Reading the name, I always thought it was a school of business for artists. It never occurred to me it was open to the public. … When we came up with a name, it wasn’t exciting, but it’s exactly what we are. I love that we might not have to explain ourselves as much.”
