Cultural Arts

The Cultural Arts program creates an environment where artists and cultural organizations thrive by advancing and supporting the arts for the benefit of the citizens of Greenwood Village. Art and culture are integral to the livability of our community. Diverse cultural offerings play an essential part in the high quality of life in Greenwood Village and in maintaining a strong sense of civic pride. The Village’s contribution to the arts through its programs as well as ongoing collaborations with many local arts groups and individual artists makes Greenwood Village stand apart from other Colorado communities. In addition to initiating and supporting a variety of arts and culture programs, the Cultural Arts program manages the Curtis Center for the Arts bringing rotating exhibits and art classes for youth and adults, brings concerts and special events to the parks and other city venues and presents public art throughout the city. 

Village Read

For the second year in a row the Greenwood Village Cultural Arts Program has partnered with Arapahoe Libraries to present the "Village Read". The idea encourages adults of all ages to read one book and participate in thought-provoking discussions and activities derived from the chosen book. The goals of the program are to encourage leisure reading, create community conversations and bring the community together through literature. This year the group has chosen the book "White Plains" by Colorado author David Hicks.  In "White Plains", Flynn Hawkins is a graduate assistant at a prestigious university, on his way to greatness and wisdom. But in the aftermath of 9/11, Flynn leaves his unhappy marriage and beloved children, resigns his teaching position, and heads west, only to get lost in his guilt and in the mountains of Colorado. When he ends up stuck overnight in a snow drift during a blizzard on the Continental Divide, he realizes he needs to remake himself into the kind of man his children need him to be. With wit and insight, David Hicks turns a compassionate but unblinking eye on what it means to be human—to be lost while putting yourself back together again, to be cowardly while being brave, to fail and fail again on the way to something that might be success.
