CONTEMPORARY ART

About

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