The CU Art Museum is celebrating over 70 years on the University of Colorado at Boulder Campus, where it has enriched the lives of students, faculty, and the broader Denver-Boulder community, while also making significant contributions to the national/international arts community.

The Visual Arts Complex (VAC) is the new home for the CU Art Museum and the Department of Art and Art History.

The new CU Art Museum features five galleries including Changing Exhibitions Galleries, Permanent Collection Galleries and a Video Gallery. The new CU Art Museum also includes state-of-the-art collection storage, a collection study center and an education/workshop room.

Designed by award-winning architects, Kallman, McKinnell & Wood in conjunction with OZ Architecture in Denver, the Visual Arts Complex incorporates environmentally sustainable building strategies for water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. Leading by example, the project is expected to spur construction of other educational, commercial, and residential green building throughout Colorado and the nation.
