The Center for Visual Art provides diverse, high-quality art experiences that bring local and international artists, MSU Denver students and the broader community together to advance the global urban dialogue.

CVA is operating under the guidance of state, city, and university guidelines. For more information on what that means, see our FAQ page.



 CVA introduces Nourish, a 4-week Culture Club art-making program. Nourish sessions will gather inspiration from exhibitions at CVA providing art-making models that inspire mindfulness and healing energy.

Each session will begin with a mindful warm up, transitioning us from the hectic world to a place of contemplation and peace.

Individual sessions will focus on landscape, the body, abstraction and dreams to guide us in understanding our interior lives better and help us to feel more at peace in our ever changing landscape.

Join us for Nourish online every Wednesday from April 14 - May 5, 6-8pm.
