LAND TRUST is an attempt to slow down and get our feet back on solid ground, to explore the cultural practices that connect us physically and spiritually to the world, and to look squarely at the human effects of environmental change. From urban agriculture to utopian aspirations, and environmentally initiated displacement to artistic approaches for protecting resources, LAND TRUST is an exploration of the multifarious connections between people and the living landscape.

ArtCorps Mentoring pairs middle school students together with local artists to work together one-on-one for an entire school year. Students design and create social justice art projects, which are then shown at RedLine. Come to the ArtCorps Mentoring Exhibition to see socially engaged work by students and artist mentors!
RedLine’s EPIC Arts program provides opportunities for K-12 students in Denver to explore social issues through contemporary art. Each semester RedLine Resident Artists and Denver community artists are matched with students and educators, resulting in unique art collaborations that are conceptual and student-generated. The program, which culminates in the EPIC Youth Exhibition, amplifies students’ voices by offering an opportunity for young people to express their unique perspectives and ideas about today’s world through art.
Since opening in 2008, RedLine Contemporary Art Center has held an annual exhibition featuring work by artists in the residency program. 2017 will launch with Nice Work If You Can Get It featuring RedLine Resident Artists and curated by Daisy McGowan – Gallery Director & Curator for the Gallery of Contemporary Art, Colorado Springs. This exhibit will explore the reality of “making it” as an artist demands hard work, space and funding.
