The Next Stage Gallery

The Next Stage Gallery is an interactive space presented by University of Colorado Denver and Denver Arts & Venues. Students from CU Denver's College of Architecture and Planning's design/build program re-imagined a vacant space in the Galleria to construct a flexible modern gallery. They focus on showing new technology in art and design, bringing new shows every few months. 

Location: In the Galleria at the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Across from the Buell Theatre

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

Current Show

Behind The Curtain—A Tribute to the Denver Performing Arts Complex highlights the work of CU student artists with masks, paintings, and other visual art representations of the goings on at the Arts Complex; offstage, onstage, backstage, and all points in between. As a bonus, the exhibit is rolling out their Augmented Reality experience. Visitors can point their phones at a poster and see clips from behind the scenes at all Arts Complex venues. The AR experience will be eventually deployed throughout the complex, so as visitors approach one of the theatres, they are able to “see” what goes on inside from their phone.‚Äč
