OUR PROGRAMS EXPLAINED

  • About these programs

    The UCCS Visiting Artists & Critics Series enters its eighth season with a lineup of virtual presentations by artists of national and international significance with a goal to foster understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through dialogue and critical conversations.
    Over the past eight years, the series co-produced by the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art and UCCS Visual Art & Art History programs has invited artists and scholars of national significance to the UCCS campus to present public lectures and meet with undergraduate students in classes and workshop settings.

    This year, the series goes virtual via Zoom webinar format – learn more about the entire series.

  • About these programs

    Virtual Studio Visits

    • For this new series of recorded virtual studio visits, GOCA’s director and chief curator Daisy McGowan invited artists from across the Rocky Mountain West to share their current studio situation, including insights into their artistic process as well as the challenges and opportunities presented by social isolation. The studio visit is among the most intimate exchanges in the art world, providing curators, critics, collectors and peer artists a chance to learn about the artist’s work and process.

    GOCA is teaming up with a weekly DJ to bring you a virtual dance party on Instagram. Live every Friday we offer a chance to dance, bring joy and connection through movement and music.

  • ChitChat is a series of mash-up talks on contemporary culture and DIY topics. Each night features two speakers, hands-on learning (often edible learning!), and a whole lot of lively conversation. ChitChat will induce and encourage diverse discussions on contemporary life - specifically in the Pikes Peak Region--and features some of the finest minds in Colorado Springs (including many of our own UCCS faculty!).

    This is going to be a lot of fun, we hope you can join us for the entire series.
