What makes the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA) unique is simple: while a traditional art museum is about connecting people with art, we create living culture and connect people to each other through art. We are part of UCCS with deep roots in the community and we rely on the support of that community to produce award-winning programs accessible to all.
Beyond bringing innovative, boundary-breaking visual art exhibits to our galleries, we produce programs and events that engage and delight our audience. Programs build on concepts in the art exhibits in varied ways, and they are all about sensory experiences: talking, touching, learning, dancing, tasting. Fact: you’ll feel smarter and inspired after attending GOCA exhibits and programs. We promise!

GOCA must raise funds to cover 100 percent of our program costs each year.
Stressing community involvement on the topics of aesthetics and cultural issues … GOCA can certainly be seen as a challenge to Denver as the center of Colorado’s art scene.
