The Next Stage Gallery

The Next Stage Gallery is an interactive space presented by University of Colorado Denver and Denver Arts & Venues.

They focus on showing new technology in art and design, bringing new shows every few months.

Hours: Tuesdays - Fridays, 4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. / Saturdays & Sundays, 12:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
