Framing the Future Campaign

In early 2023, CPAC will move from our current location at 1070 Bannock Street to the Art Studios building at 1200 Lincoln Street in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District. 

For the first time in CPAC’s 59-year history, we have an opportunity to customize our space to meet the needs of our growing community of working artists, educators, students, photography enthusiasts, and visitors. Working with architects at Semple Brown Design, our plans include an additional 1500 sq. ft. of gallery space, a dedicated classroom, expanded darkroom, storage for CPAC’s Permanent Collection, library, and office space. 

These changes will create more exhibition opportunities for artists, a better learning environment for students, and an improved art-viewing experience for visitors. Most importantly, CPAC’s move will introduce a new chapter of stability for the organization and allow us to expand our mission and impact in Denver and beyond.
