From a gala or a banquet at the newly opened McNichols Civic Center
Building in Denver to a reception or general session at the historic Boulder
Theater, groups can count on added inspiration when networking away from
the host hotel during meetings in the Rockies.
An only-in-Denver option for off-site group events is the Clyfford Still Museum, a boutique single-artist facility showcasing all of Still’s works and featuring 19 skylights that fill the second-floor galleries with Colorado sunlight.
“All events include private access to the entire museum—a great experience
for all art lovers,” said Lydia Garmaier, the venue’s director of visitor services
and events. “Our jewel-box setting offers a beautiful lobby area for a seated
dinner or passed hors d’oeuvres.”
Trained gallery guides are available for Q&A sessions during events, and
during the summer the forecourt area can be booked for outdoor gatherings.
RedLine, a contemporary art center, features rotating exhibits and hosts
everything from receptions to annual fundraisers.
According to Louise Martorano, the venue’s executive director, contemporary art table installations are available instead of traditional table dressing to
elevate the aesthetic experience of any seated event.
Among the gathering spaces here are a reception area, an area with floor-to-ceiling windows that’s connected to a patio and a main exhibition hall.
In September 2016, Denver Arts & Venues reopened the historic McNichols
Civic Center Building with renovations to allow for more diversity in event
programming, according to Amber C. Fochi, marketing and communications
coordinator for Denver Arts & Venues.
The building’s second and third floors showcase rotating art exhibits and
there is space on-site to accommodate meetings, galas, meal functions and
other private events.
“All three floors boast open floor plans and flexible spaces with exposed ironwork,” Fochi said. “The space serves as a blank canvas for any
type of event.”
