We couldn't do it without you

What makes the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA) unique is simple: we don't just display art, we connect people through art. We are part of UCCS, with deep roots in the community, and we rely on the support of the community to produce award-winning programs accessible to all.

Beyond bringing innovative, boundary-breaking visual art exhibits to our galleries, we produce programs and events that engage and delight our audiences. Our events build on concepts in the art exhibits, and they are all about sensory experiences: talking, touching, learning, dancing, tasting. Fact: You'll feel smarter and inspired after attending GOCA exhibits and events. We promise!

GOCA is responsible for raising all funds for all of its programs. Many of our events and exhibitions are 100% free to the public. Your donation in any amount makes this possible. Thank you!
