: About the Gallery :
In 1973, the Emmanuel Gallery became part of the Auraria Campus – which includes the Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State Univeristy of Denver, and the University of Colorado Denver. The space exhibition had its beginnings as a Episcopalian chapel built by Bishop Spaulding in 1876 on the site of a older non-denominational church. The church had several owners since 1876 and has since been remolded for use as an art gallery by the three Auraria Campus institutions and the local community.
The gallery exhibits work from exceptional visiting visual artists as well as the faculty and student artists from the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and Community College of Denver.
The gallery is within walking distance from the 16th street mall and the bustling LoDo district at the heart of Denver's thriving, dynamic arts community. The urban setting of the gallery yields endless opportunities for students, faculty, and the general public to learn, experience, and show their art.
