From a 15th Street storefront to LoDo to its current home in the Art District on Santa Fe, CORE New Art Space has been riding Denver’s waves of change for 35 years. Tonight, the co-op will remember its many locations and incarnations with the opening of Celebrate, featuring work from Valerie Savarie, Lola Montejo, co-founder Bruce Clark and many more.
Created by artists for artists in 1981, CORE has always been a place that championed community. “There weren’t very many opportunities for artists in Denver at the time,” says Clark, who was there at the beginning, then spent some time away before rejoining the cooperative. “That’s kind of why the artists pulled together to create their own venue.”
The gallery's 35th Anniversary Party runs from 6 to 9 p.m. December 31 at CORE, 900 Santa Fe Drive; for more information on the evening and a full list of participating artists, visit corenewartspace.com.
