The Next Stage Gallery 

The Next Stage Gallery is an interactive space presented by University of Colorado Denver and Denver Arts & Venues. Students from CU Denver's College of Architecture and Planning's design/build program re-imagined a vacant space in the Galleria to construct a flexible modern gallery. They focus on showing new technology in art and design, bringing new shows every few months.

Location: In the Galleria at the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Across from the Buell Theatre

Hours: Tuesdays - Fridays, 4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. / Saturdays & Sundays, 12:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
