Who We Are
The Center for Visual Art (CVA) is the off-campus art gallery of Metropolitan State College of Denver. In addition to showing significant contemporary art, the award-winning CVA serves as an interactive art laboratory for Metro State students and the larger community.
The CVA was founded in 1990 to expose students to leading-edge art and to broaden Metro State’s art program. Located in lower downtown Denver (LoDo), the non-profit art space makes an important contribution to visual art offerings available in Denver and the Rocky Mountain West, bringing in art that would not otherwise be seen here.
