McNichols Civic Center Building, Denver Arts and 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.
