It is one of the largest university art facilities in the country.

The Visual Arts Complex includes two buildings connected by a third floor breezeway and pedestrian mall. One building will hold the University of Colorado Art Museum. The museum will include a collection of over 5,000 works of art, two permanent collection galleries and two changing exhibition galleries. Public and student art will be displayed as well. The Visual Arts Complex’s Art Museum held its grand opening on September 24, 2010.
