The horse culture plays an important role in the Greenwood Village community. While it is home to the Denver Technology Center and its many contemporary, high-rise buildings, Greenwood Village is still dotted with horse property and barns. To honor this culture, the Curtis Center for the Arts presents two exhibits celebrating the art of the horse. “Horse Power” is an exhibit featuring works from contemporary artists from across the country at the Curtis Center for the Arts. "Caballo de Fuerza" is a display of historical, horse artifacts on loan Museo De Las Americas in Denver's Santa Fe Arts District. These works will be on display at the Greenwood Village City Hall. The purpose of the exhibits is to express the beauty of these magnificent creatures in many different styles and mediums.
