In 100 Best Small Arts Towns in America ( John Muir Publications: Santa Fe), John Villani identifies Creede as a place to "discover creative people, fresh air, and affordable living." Creede supports one of the most active and energetic arts communities in the country with a variety of commercial galleries and studios plus an Art Park and many more exhibits sequestered among private homes. The Creede Repertory Theatre, an active arts organization (Creede Arts Council), and The Creede Woodcarver's Rendezvous are additional enhancements to Creede's art scene.
