Throughout the project, NINE dot ARTS helped coordinate an innovative public-private partnership between Denver Arts & Venues, the city agency that oversees the convention center, and SMG, the center’s management firm. The new additions showcase both the city’s artistic forefathers such as Roland Bernier and Phil Bender as well as its next generation of creatives like Mindy Bray, Derrick Velasquez, and Sandra Fettingis. The new convention center art became a cornerstone for the launch of IMAGINE 2020, Mayor Michael B. Hancock’s new cultural plan for Denver
The Colorado Convention Center, already known for its progressive public art, selected NINE dot ARTS to curate fourteen new art installations from Colorado-based artists and galleries that nearly doubled their permanent collection.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
