The amazing Botero exhibit at the Fine Arts Center will close this week. You can get a firsthand peek at what the art handlers at the museum will go through to move his monumental sculptures with this feature we produced shortly after the show opened on May 30.

In our ongoing quest to take you behind the scenes of everything, we bring you this candid look (and listen) at the installation of the monumental sculptures for the Baroque World of Fernando Botero exhibit that opened recently at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.. Tariana Navas-Nieves, Curator, Hispanic and Native American Art, narrates.

As always, we adore your comments and feedback. Please leave some below or email us at thebigsomething@krcc.org. Thanks!
