The Cultural Arts program creates an environment where artists and cultural organizations thrive by advancing and supporting the arts for the benefit of the citizens of Greenwood Village. Art and culture are integral to the livability of our community. Diverse cultural offerings play an essential part in the high quality of life in Greenwood Village and in maintaining a strong sense of civic pride. The Village’s contribution to the arts through its programs as well as ongoing collaborations with many local arts groups and individual artists makes Greenwood Village stand apart from other Colorado communities. In addition to initiating and supporting a variety of arts and culture programs, the Cultural Arts program manages the Curtis Center for the Arts bringing rotating exhibits and art classes for youth and adults, brings concerts and special events to the parks and other city venues and presents public art throughout the city.
