Why we're working for Colorado Women Artists

WE’RE NOMADS RIGHT NOW!

Give It Up! Help us Buy a Building.

Historically and still today, accomplished women artists have lacked adequate opportunities for exhibitions and representation through traditional galleries and museums.

In the 1980s the Guerilla Girls protested in New York asking, "Do women have to be naked to get into the MET Museum?" Referring to the many nude paintings of women in the Metropolitan Art Museum, and the lack of women painters exhibited.

The first time a survey of artwork by gender was conducted, it revealed that only 11% of the artwork shown in US museums and galleries was by women artists.

Things haven't improved much in these 40 years. Representation of women artists had only increased to 13% by 2017.

We have our eye on the building at 9th and Santa Fe Dr. in the heart of the Arts District on Santa Fe.

This district has been active for more than 40 years and was the starting point of the popular First Fridays Art Walk.

It is also the first Colorado Certified Art District. There are significant benefits to purchasing the building.

# 1. Highlight and elevate the artwork and accomplishments of Colorado Women Artists.

# 2. Have a physical location for the Center & Museum in the Arts District on Santa Fe.

# 3. Keep rents lower than a for profit landlord needs, which will allow the current galleries to remain in the building.

# 4. Preserve the building as a gallery and central hub in the Arts District on Santa Fe.

# 5. Help sustain the arts as a significant highlight in Denver for residents and visitors.
