Beers Made By Walking
June 3rd, 2022, June 4th, 2022
In 2011 the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA) commissioned artist, Eric Steen, to launch the first Beers Made By Walking— a program that invites brewers to go on nature hikes and urban walks and make new “place-based beers” inspired by plants from the trail.
The GOCA Vision
We can see the future: GOCA will be the leader in producing and providing access to significant contemporary art experiences of national and international relevance in the region.
Most importantly, GOCA is a social place. We're an institution that's about you, our friends and visitors. When we think about upcoming exhibitions and lectures, we're thinking about you and what you might think is cool/fun/challenging/exciting/new. We're a place for the people, where exhibitions are free, refreshments are plentiful and humor is welcome.
Diverse opportunities for visitors to engage with new ideas, aesthetics and cultural perspectives through exhibitions, programs, lectures
And exhibit excellent work in contemporary visual art
Work outside the gallery through site-specific installations, performances and happenings
Public awareness and support for GOCA
And analyze visitor feedback
