The City of Englewood places an emphasis on the arts and encourages the display of public art throughout the community.
Museum of Outdoor Art (MOA)
The MOA office is located on the second floor of the Civic Center. MOA specializes in creating environments that promote a range of sculpture, as well as performance art. Its art collection is located within various public locations throughout the Englewood area (as well as Denver). The art is placed to interpret space as “a museum without walls”, employing a combination of art, architecture, and landscape. Museum of Outdoor Arts believes in “making art a part of everyday life” by integrating the art into public spaces accessible by all.
Hampden Hall at Englewood Civic Center
Hampden Hall, billed as “the most versatile arts space in the south metro” holds concerts, dance exhibits and educational programs. With state –of-the-art lighting and sound systems and seating up to 192, the facility is for rent to outside agencies for business, seminars, graduations, and theatrical performances.
One of the focal points of CityCenter Englewood is the amphitheater located at the base of the stairs to the Light Rail Station. Events are held through the summer including the Sounds of Summer Concert series and many other musical and dramatic performances.
Retaining its grand art deco style from the 1920’s, the Gothic was reborn in 1998. Bringing in musicians from around the country, this theatre is one of the premier music venues in the world.
