Here’s why Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus has a world-class art gallery


​We have an astonishing collection of paintings, drawings and sculpture on display through May 23rd in our art gallery in the Center for Bioethics and Humanities on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. Works by Monet, Rodin, Degas, Picasso and others can be seen in an extraordinarily intimate setting — for free.
 
People often wonder why there is an art gallery on a health sciences campus. One answer is that just as the sciences require special facilities — clinics and laboratories — to support healing and discovery, artistic and ethical learning also requires distinctive spaces like theatres and galleries.
 
Still, we know that having a building at the heart of our state’s health sciences campus that is specifically designed to cultivate learning and discovery through the arts is pretty unusual, perhaps even unique.
