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.

Diversity in the West <p>Buffalo Bill, through his show and other activities, has made an indelible imprint upon American history and culture. While Buffalo Bill's Wild West was based upon Cody's own experiences growing up in the American West, he advocated for Native American and Women's equal rights and both were featured prominently in the Wild West. The show eventually turned into an international affair, employing performers from every continent (except Antarctica).</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
