Our Global Village
May 10 – June 14, 2013
Our three galleries are filled with works by artists from across the globe and by American artists inspired by other cultures.
Kindle your own inspiration to travel and learn about the lives of people from Egypt, Mexico, Myanmar, Africa, and more. See the first art produced through our own collaborative project with Intercambio Uniting Communities. This project, Artful Bridges to Community, kicked into full gear at the Opening Friday May 10th when we began to exhibit art by participants. Participating community members have migrated to Colorado, leaving their home countries and comforts behind. Art is being added each week as our project continues and we get to know our neighbors. Come write on the interactive message wall! Consider joining us in our Main Lobby Saturday, May 18th at 11 am for a community gathering with Intercambio.

GALLERIES AT THE DAIRY
The Dairy’s galleries began with the inception of the Colorado Community Curator (CCC) program in 1997 with a roughed-out gallery area and rolling wall padlocked each night for security purposes. When Phase II of The Dairy renovation was completed in 2001, the McMahon Gallery, In Focus Gallery, Polly Addison Exhibition Space and The MacMillan Family Lobby opened as premier gallery spaces for local art exhibitions. Today, our Dairy galleries exhibit the work of more than eighty regional, national and international artists in eighteen juried shows each year.
The Dairy Galleries are growing in recognition throughout Colorado and , nationally and internationally. In January of each year, a Call for Entries is made for art to be shown in our galleries for the following year; e.g. in February 2012, the Call for Entries will be made for juried shows in 2013. Information about the application process will be given on this site at that time. The application process will close in late March. The Dairy’s Visual Art Committee (VAC) will jury applications in April with final selection notification made to artists in May or June. The volunteer committee VAC is comprised of business owners, artists, CU faculty, art patrons, board members and The Dairy Gallery Coordinator.
