Center for Visual Art

The Center for Visual Art (CVA) is the off-campus art gallery of Metropolitain State University of Denver.  The CVA ia a division of the MSU Denver Department of Art.  In addition to showing significant contemporary art, the award-winning CVA serves as an interactive art laboratory for Metropolitan State University of Denver students and the larger community.

The CVA was founded in 1990 to expose students to leading-edge art and to broaden MSU Denver's art program. The non-profit art space makes an important contribution to visual art offerings available in Denver and the Rocky Mountain West, bringing in art that would not otherwise be seen here.

The Metropolitan State University of Denver art department is dedicated to providing their students with an unparalleled urban learning environment and a strong sense of community within the local art scene. The Center for Visual Art contributes to Metropolitan State University's status as the only public higher education art program in Colorado to maintain accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
