In December 2011, four local galleries joined together to raise funds for community arts by holding a progressive Tapas Party. The weather prevented many folks from attending, but those who did had a wonderful evening. Funds were distributed between the La Veta School of the Arts, Fridays for Fun children's program and SPACe's Children's Art Workshop. Part of the funds raised will be used to pay for state highway signs on US Hwy 160, advertising Fine Art Galleries in La Veta.
