nThe Lincoln Center is a City-owned cultural facility with two art galleries, two theatres, and a conference center. The Lincoln Center Visual Arts Program promotes and nourishes the creation and appreciation of the visual arts. Diverse exhibitions, programs and projects engage and inspire our community through the world of art and ideas. The Center presents 8-10 rotating exhibitions each year in our newly renovated self-contained art gallery of 1,450 s.f., and a smaller gallery in the main lobby suitable for two-dimensional work only, with 46 linear feet.
nThe Lincoln Center seeks visually compelling exhibitions that provide a unique and robust visual arts experience for the Colorado community. Artists and curators are encouraged to submit proposals and portfolios for consideration of solo and group exhibitions in our art galleries. Lincoln Center staff may elect to combine multiple artists for small group exhibitions, and will determine the exhibition space for the applicant. Artists seeking to exhibit in the larger self-contained gallery may be invited to present engaging, educational programs such as a lecture or gallery talk, school program, demonstration or other special presentation that relates to, augments and/or interprets the exhibition. To support this endeavor, the Lincoln Center will provide some assistance with exhibition expenses such as shipping, installation and/or travel.
