After a year of restoration and enhancement, Denver Arts & Venues is reopening the McNichols Civic Center Building to the public with a special event Thursday, Sept. 15, 5:30 p.m.

The public is invited to partake in a grand reopening celebration with food, drink, entertainment and opportunities to win prizes such as roundtrip airfare, tickets to Red Rocks concerts, Broadway shows, and more. Tickets are on sale now at AXS.com.

The grand reopening celebration is the public’s opportunity to see the newest iteration of this historic building. Improvement highlights include a new front courtyard offering better connectivity to Civic Center Park and universal access to the building. The open courtyard supports outdoor program activation, as well as showcasing the building’s second floor exterior balcony. A new freight elevator grants easier access for public and private events and will enable diverse Denver Arts & Venues programming. Second and third floor restrooms have been renovated and relocated creating more usable space and higher capacity events.

The grand reopening celebration also highlights the newest exhibitions at the McNichols Building. “Art of Sport: Iconic Photographs of American Legends from 1956-today” features the work of the famous Rich Clarkson and the Clarkson Creative Group, and includes iconic shots of NCAA tournaments, the Denver Broncos and Colorado Rockies. “I’ve got a bike!: Artists respond to the Bicycle” celebrates Colorado’s bike community through the eyes of local artists with SPOKES presenting cutting-edge videos and sculptures on the cycling theme.

Opening as a Carnegie Library in 1910, and located at the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Bannock Street, the McNichols Building originally served as Denver’s first public library and as the center of learning in Civic Center Park. The Greek Revival-style building was designed by Albert Ross and funded through a generous $200,000 donation from industrialist and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. The building served as a library until 1955 and then as the home of the Denver Water Board. The building was renamed the McNichols Civic Center Building in 1999 in honor of the McNichols family contributions to Denver.

In 2010 the inaugural Biennial of the Americas transformed the building into a focal point of culture, art and ideas, representing people of the western hemisphere for the month of July. Denver Arts & Venues re-opened the building in 2012 as a contemporary arts and culture hub for the people of Denver. The McNichols Building, with its classic Corinthian columns and iconic colonnade, offers new arts and culture experiences in a classic space. The building, along with Civic Center Park, was named a National Historic Landmark in 2012. With the new renovations, the distinguished building enters its new chapter, not only as a historic cornerstone in Denver, but as a place to experience art, culture and events.
