Over 30 years ago, Pirate: Contemporary Art opened in Denver, Colorado as an audacious and eclectic alternative, artist-run cooperative gallery.

Today, little has changed - although our space has gotten slightly smaller and our front door relocated about 50 feet south of the corner. Many member artists have come and gone, but Pirate persists. It's an institution that remains flexible and edgy.

Pirate is open Friday evenings from 6 - 10 PM, Saturday& Sunday Noon to 5PM.
If you need to visit us at a time we are not open we suggest you contact the showing artist at that time (listed on our calendar page) to arrange for a private viewing


Silent Art Auction
Thursday, June 25th, 6-8pm

Pirate: Contemporary Art Silent Art Auction is a fundraiser to help keep Pirate in its current location. Recently celebrating its 35th Anniversary, Pirate is one of the oldest artist run spaces in Denver. Through the years it has been a premier space showing some of the best cutting edge and experimental art. Featuring incredible new and established talent, many artists have passed through Pirate’s doors. You can help support the long tradition of this unique co-op. Current members are donating artwork for the auction to be held one night only. For more information visit Pirate’s Facebook page. $5 suggested donation.
