The Museum Of Friends (MOF) is a contemporary art museum which opened in October of 2006 in the Southern Colorado community of Walsenburg by artists Brendt and Maria Cocchiarelli Berger. MOF occupies 6,000 square feet of museum display space with room for expansion.

The museum’s name stems from the fact that the initial 600 piece collection on exhibit is almost entirely comprised of paintings, photographs, sculpture and other pieces of art which had been given separately to Brendt and Maria by their respective artist friends. These friends continue to provide the museum with additional art to expand the collection. Today, the collection includes 1,700 works of art.

Be sure to check out the Made in Walsenburg Gift Shop located in the Museum!  The shop offers quality locally sourced art, crafts, handcrafts, photographs, ceramics, made by our own creatives.

Kathy Hill says –

“Color and light are always significant in my paintings. I am fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful, best-kept secrets in Colorado. No matter whether my painting is of the magnificent Spanish Peaks, or of a lowly rock in the snow, my hope is to connect with others who share my love of the natural world.

As we experience the world around us, we often hold onto fleeting moments we remember more as feelings than how things really looked. In my work, I strive to capture these moments, enhancing the feelings with expressive colors, yet retaining the reality of the scene.”
