About The Modbo
Welcome to The Modbo, a contemporary art gallery in Colorado Springs.
Staff (of one)
Curator, owner, and impresario Lauren Ciborowski has run The Modbo since 2009. In addition to curating and planning all the shows, she hangs the art, cleans the toilet, pays the artists, does the graphic design, gets the PR out, sweeps the floor, sends the emails, and changes the lightbulbs. An Army brat, Lauren graduated magna cum laude from Colorado College with a major in Southwest Studies and a minor in German. She then went on to work as as Native American liaison for a major natural gas pipeline company for three years. She left that arena entirely to work as a professional pianist and piano teacher (and barista, and KCME radio announcer, and ballet accompanist, and bartender, and dental assistant and…) before spending three years in the financial world. She is now happily back to a more Bohemian realm, and spends her time either at The Modbo or at a piano– whether it’s playing for ballet classes, weddings, awkward gigs, or teaching one of her nearly 20 piano students. She lives in Colorado Springs with her husband, Ben.
