COLORADO SPRINGS — An interactive art space is now open in Colorado Springs and it’s the perfect spot for that next selfie. Selfie Bear Bear announced its ribbon cutting and grand opening for July 28 at 1:30 p.m.

The space, which opened at the end of June, features more than 20 backgrounds to snap that perfect pic. There are light rings, selfie stands, props – plus great music to enjoy while you “do it for the gram!”

Selfie Bear Bear can be booked for private events including bachelorette parties, birthdays, graduations, team building events, reunions, photo shoots and more.

This new modern art experience was created by Erin Spradlin.

Spradlin says she opened Colorado Springs’ first Instagram studio because, “I wanted a business that was really light. The world is serious, so it appealed to me to have something where people could laugh and be with friends and family.”

Selfie Bear Bear is located on North Tejon Street between North Cascade Avenue and East Dale Street near Colorado College downtown.

“I sort of feel like it’s the next generation of art,” Spradlin said. “You are incorporating yourself into the art and you are using media to kind of share yourself – so I like that concept.”

Selfie Bear Bear is open Thursday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sunday’s from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission is $20 per person for ages nine to 59. $10 for ages 60+, and free for kids eight and under (must be accompanied by an adult). Special $10 admission prices will be on first Fridays.
