Education - Performance Venues - Visual Art: Galleries

The UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA) is on a mission to bring exhilarating art experiences that spark engaged thinking, questioning, wondering, and socializing. They are a place for the people, where exhibitions are free, refreshments are plentiful, and humor is more than welcome.
Most importantly, GOCA strives to connect people to each other through art. Rather then just create an audience, their goal is to create community.
GOCA manages and programs contemporary art experiences for two gallery spaces: one on the UCCS campus and GOCA 121 is located downtown in the Plaza of the Rockies. Having two locations allows GOCA to provide twice the culture to Colorado Springs while also deepening engagement with diverse populations. The galleries serve as a teaching space not only for the UCCS academic community, but also the general public.
