RedLine is an innovative, mixed-use arts space that combines an artist residency program with project-based community engagement in the arts. RedLine offers arts education for at-risk youth, weekly workshops for homeless artists, and programs for the public at large. By merging contemporary art with arts education and community involvement, RedLine helps bring the transformative power of art to the surrounding neighborhood and beyond.

This Curtis Park concrete block commercial building once housed an auto parts warehouse, but the garage doors in the loading docks are new, added during the 2008 renovation. Located at 2350 Arapahoe Street (corner of 24th & Arapahoe), RedLine exists at the intersection of Curtis Park and Five Points neighborhoods. Redline is also a part of the RiNo arts district.

The building was designed by renowned architects Semple-Brown to encourage artists and visitors alike to enter a realm where inspiration remains absolutely unchecked. Guests of RedLine literally cross a red line into a space where they are free to explore their own creativity. In support of this aim, the building has been thoughtfully designed to bring art and beauty to the surrounding neighborhood and community and to incorporate as many environmentally friendly nuances as possible.

Come visit the open studios of several emerging and mid-career artists and get a first-hand peek into the creative process. In addition, visitors can enjoy a browseable art library and an interactive element in Redline’s 30,000 square foot of exhibition space. Redline’s location can be identified by a beautiful solar light canopy that adorns its famous patio.
