Enjoy the space where art meets science and history connects to what’s new

CSU Spur purchased an old building on the site of its future campus and worked to restore it as part of the CSU Spur campus. Now, this storied building, which was built in 1930 and served several uses – including its most recent as an auto mechanic – is affectionately called The Shop. 

The Shop is part of the Hydro building but offers a unique space that brings together water nonprofits and educational organizations under the same roof and is also home to seven artist studios where the public can watch artists at work. 

In addition to the artist studios, The Shop is home to Water Education Colorado and a first-of-its-kind partnership with College Track.
