The DCM is organized and curated by Denver resident Jaime Kopke.
The contents of the Denver Community Museum are generated entirely by submissions from the local community. Exhibitions will change on a monthly basis. One month before an exhibition begins, an open call for participation is announced in the form of a Community Challenge, describing a particular creative project.
Participants can interpret and solve the Challenge as they please. There is no minimum or maximum age limit, nor is there any particular skill level required. Contributors must be residents of the Denver/Boulder area.
At the end of the month, the results of each Challenge are collected and put on display within the Museum. Depending on the nature of the Challenge, exhibitions may include objects, videos, drawings, stories etc.
Submissions for the current Community Challenge are due:.
When: Friday, October 24th or Saturday, October 25th from 12-5 PM
Where: Denver Community Museum, 1610 Little Raven St., Suite 120, Denver CO 80202
How: Any Denver/Boulder area resident of any age may submit an artifact. Participants will be required to sign a waiver form to enter their work.
The Denver Community Museum is centrally located in Riverfront Park, near downtown Denver.
