Overview

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

Goals

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.
