Denver — Denver’s Chicano Humanities and Arts Council (CHAC) gallery is looking for a new home.
The gallery was located at 222 Santa Fe Drive, but was forced to close the door during a pandemic and remains closed due to rising rents.
“We probably can’t stay in the Santa Fairts area. It’s basically price cuts,” said Brenda Gurule, executive director of CHAC Gallery.
For the past few months, the gallery has hosted virtual events and art shows, according to Gruul.
They also partner with other galleries in the city to display their exhibits.
“We are hosting a generation show at one of our partner galleries in Converge in the RiNo area,” Gurule said. “Generational exhibits try to combine veteran artists with the younger generation.”
CHAC was originally created in 1978 and has provided educational classes to the community.
Despite some major challenges, Gruul says the gallery is planning to reopen in a new location and is currently looking for a new space.
