Visit Guidelines

To protect yourself and help ensure the best possible experience, we ask that you follow these guidelines when visiting CVA:

  • Come back another day if you are not feeling well or please wear a face mask that covers your nose and mouth.
  • For the safety of the artwork, please leave backpacks or large bags in your vehicle. Otherwise, you will be asked to check your bag at the front desk, as they are not allowed in the exhibition space.
  • Animals: CVA welcomes trained service animals that assist individuals with disabilities on CVA property and in CVA-controlled spaces and areas open to the public, as provided by this policy and applicable law. Otherwise, animals are not permitted within the building.
  • Non-flash photography is permissible unless otherwise posted.
  • Personal videography is allowed in the museum. The museum often photographs and films onsite programs for use on promotional materials. If you do not wish to be filmed or photographed, please inform a staff member.
  • Food and drink is not allowed near the gallery.
  • As always, please refrain from touching artwork.
  • Please contact one of our associates with any questions at 303-615-0282 or [email protected].
