Call for Membership Proposals
Ice Cube Gallery is seeking prolific emerging and established artists and curators for juried review to become a member of one of Denver’s most dynamic artist-run galleries! We are currently seeking all themes and styles of contemporary art that is pushing the boundaries in concept, process, and/or material.
Ice Cube is currently closed until we re-open again later this year, hopefully by June 2017. Our new location will be at con•cept, 6601 Colorado Blvd in Commerce City. Con•cept is being built on an old farmstead in the middle of an industrial area, just 7 minutes northeast of RiNo. We think this is Denver’s next exciting creative destination. Two brand, spankin’ new contemporary buildings are being built that will house a number of galleries and artist studios, with access by a planned light rail line scheduled to be running next year. We’re excited.
Our web site is currently being updated. Please check in with it for updates and to become familiar with Ice Cube Gallery, its artists, mission, and events. You may also check con•cept’s site at www.concept-colorado.com for information and updates on the exciting things that will be happening there.
