Golden Lotus Foundation desires to identify a location in Colorado Springs for a botanical garden, tea house, and space for local Asian heritage organizations as an International Cultural Center to publicize and promote Asian cultural activities.
Established in 2011, the Golden Lotus Foundation® is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Colorado Springs whose mission is to celebrate Asian tradition and inspire passion for Asian heritage through community resources and education programs, and to expand support for Asian culture projects.
Our 2024 Fine Arts Calendar is now available
Twelve winning images from the first Annual Golden Lotus Art Competition were selected to be included in this stunning calendar, printed in beautiful full color!
The proceeds from the sale of the calendar will help fund the Asian Heritage Center at 1819 West Cheyenne Road in Colorado Springs, CO, which comprises 8.48 wooded acres with a lily pond. Projects include creating a teahouse, managing over 500 trees, and updating the grounds.
