McNichols Civic Center Building, Denver Arts & Venues

Details

The McNichols Civic Center Building is located in the heart of downtown Denver at the northwest corner of Civic Center Park. In 1909, the cornerstone of the building was laid, setting the foundation for the then Carnegie Library that would become a center of learning in the park. That tradition continues, as the building was reopened in 2012 as a contemporary hub for arts, culture and events for the people of Denver. This stunning Greek Revival building with its classic Corinthian columns and iconic colonnade across its front, offers new experiences in a classic space.

Light in All Darkness: Images and Icons from William Hart McNichols <p>Heralded by Time magazine "as among the most famous creators of Christian iconic imagery in the world," Father William Hart McNichols creates paintings inspired by a centuries-old tradition, masterfully brought to the present through a thoughtful selection of subjects. Father McNichols not only honors a holy person or event, but he also represents symbolic individuals from various religious and lay backgrounds, figures from popular culture, and people well-known for making an impact in social justice causes. Neither the icons nor the saints represented in his works are meant to be worshipped, but rather are seen as a "window" into the heavenly realm. The beauty of these images will call you to learn about each icon's inspiring story.</p> <p>This exhibition is hosted at the McNichols Civic Center Building whose family namesake has a long history in Denver. Father William Hart McNichols is the son of Colorado Governor Stephen L.R. McNichols. The McNichols Civic Center Building celebrates the contributions of the McNichols family, including Denver Mayor William H. McNichols, Jr. and City Auditor of the City and County of Denver William Henry McNichols.</p> 144 W. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Street Art Ink: From the Body to the Wall <p>Street Art Ink: From the Body to the Wall explores the intersection of tattoo and mural art. Denver artists Casey Kawaguchi and Sandi Calistro transform the third floor of the McNichols Civic Center Building with impactful murals inspired by tattoo art and honoring the tattoo tradition. Kawaguchi's bold mural style is unmistakably influenced by his Japanese heritage and the rich history of tattooing in Japan. Sandi Calistro, a tattoo artist and muralist, transforms what she considers the "most intimate form of art" to a larger than life image that still captures the emotional and personal aspect of permanent body art. The work of body art photographer Richard Todd from Los Angeles captivates and engages his audience highlighting the beauty of this magnificent art form. His images of people wearing art by some of the best tattoo artists from around the globe have been featured in publications worldwide and can be found in numerous museum collections in the United States, Europe and Asia. He continues to be a major contributing photographer for Tattoo Life Magazine.</p> <p>Exhibit-related programming will include a runway show of 20 tattoo models. Seymon Gurule, the featured fashion designer, will be working to unify the models in hair, makeup and attire to fully highlight each model's tattoos. Special guest emcee TBA.</p> 144 W.
