The UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art are the most progressive and experimental contemporary art galleries in Colorado Springs. Exhibitions showcase artists of significant national and international reputation. The senior thesis show is presented at GOCA each May. GOCA 121 is off-campus, located in the heart of downtown and focuses on innovative collaborations between local, national, and international curators and artists. GOCA's newest exhibition space, the Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery of Contemporary Art, is located in the Ent Center for the Arts. Both spaces provide students and the community at large opportunities to see excellent, award-winning work. GOCA takes student employees in addition to Museum Studies & Gallery Practice students and provides one-of-a-kind experience in art preparation, installation, and curation.
The Visual Resource Center houses two professional Epson Stylus Pro printers, a graphic arts scanner, and two iMac desktop computers - both with Adobe Creative Cloud. Students may also check out digital and manual cameras, digital camcorders, microphones, lighting equipment, audio records, digital projectors, tripods, and a GoPro for course-related projects. The Center is located in Columbine Hall.
