The Cultural Arts program creates an environment where artists and cultural organizations thrive by advancing and supporting the arts for the benefit of the citizens of Greenwood Village. Art and culture are integral to the livability of our community. Diverse cultural offerings play an essential part in the high quality of life in Greenwood Village and in maintaining a strong sense of civic pride. The Village’s contribution to the arts through its programs as well as ongoing collaborations with many local arts groups and individual artists makes Greenwood Village stand apart from other Colorado communities. In addition to initiating and supporting a variety of arts and culture programs, the Cultural Arts program manages the Curtis Center for the Arts bringing rotating exhibits and art classes for youth and adults, brings concerts and special events to the parks and other city venues and presents public art throughout the city.

Black Cube Project at the Curtis Center

The Curtis Center for the Arts was selected by Black Cube, a gallery without walls, to participate in their latest project, SHARESHARE is a series of 100 small-scale, bronze, sculptural text installations by Mexico City-based artist and Black Cube Fellow, Anuar Maauad. The artworks are installed on building facades throughout the Denver area. Each sculptural phrase mimics the thick, geometric, slab serif font and gold coloring of the iconic Trump Tower sign. Maauad’s series of text installations are approachable in scale and relay an uplifting message: “To share is precious, pure, and fair.” The phrase is a lyric from “I Want You” by American singer and songwriter Marvin Gaye. In doing so, the artist subtly transforms an icon synonymous with power into an artwork that symbolizes kindness. By engaging numerous public sites throughout the community and encouraging members of the community to disseminate a positive anecdote, the artist is literally acting out the message of his work. The artwork at the Curtis Center for the Arts can be found on the north side of the building. More information can be found at www.blackcube.art.
