RedLine Contemporary Art Center is an innovative, mixed-use arts center that fosters education and engagement between artists and communities to create positive social change.

Collaborative and responsive programming engages Denver’s diverse communities while supporting and showcasing the careers of local, national and international artists. RedLine’s focus on equitable access to and engagement in the arts is central to its exhibitions, artist-in-residence program, youth art education and community art programs. The organization has played an increasingly critical role in administering regranting programs (including Arts in Society) that support organizations and individual artists. Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and RedLine are strongly aligned in our equity values and the belief that art plays an essential role in responding to societal needs and creating positive social change.
