Slated to open July 2020 - Janaury 2021
In collaboration with History Colorado, see historically significant paintings, sculptures, textiles, and writings from Colorado’s Chicano/Mexican American community, including selections from up-and-coming artists as well as such prominent figures as Carlota EspinoZa, Carlos Fresquez, and David Ocelotl García. The Hecho en Colorado (Made in Colorado) exhibition honors the artistic achievements of the Latino community whose impact continues to shape Colorado culture. The exhibit will be on view in the ground-floor Ballantine Gallery, directly adjacent to the History Colorado Center's iconic Anschutz Hamilton Hall, which will host regularly scheduled small-group Cafecitos that grant exclusive access to groups who register in advance. Larger virtual events with artists discussing their influences and experiences will also take place via Zoom and Facebook Live.
The Hecho en Colorado
Coloring Book Contest
Send some love to Denver artists by coloring in their drawings specially made for you! Then submit your coloring page with your name and age by emailing us at:
We will pick 3 submissions to receive a $25 gift certificate to Hijos del Sol.
SUBMIT YOUR COLORING PAGE BY MAY 30th!
The Hecho en Colorado Coloring Book includes drawings created by Colorado artists within the LCAC collection. This project wouldn’t be possible without artists who like us care deeply about your access to the arts while schools and cultural institutions are closed. We thank them for their support and everyone who is working together to provide relief for those in need. We hope we are able to put color back into your life by providing inspiration and comfort. Please consider leaving a donation to aide the "Hecho en Colorado" artists during this time.
Starting May 8th, We are Open by Appointment ONLY
