Denver Host Committee
A location like no other
Mercy Housing is ecstatic to host our 40th Anniversary Gala at the Denver Art Museum this year.
With encyclopedic collections of more than 70,000 diverse works from across the centuries and world, the Denver Art Museum, located in the Denver Civic Center, is one of the largest art museums between the West Coast and Chicago. It is known for its collection of American Indian art, as well as The Petrie Institute of Western American Art, which oversees the Museum’s Western art collection.
The gala will be held in the Sturm Grand Pavilion which is the premiere event space on level two of the Sie Welcome Center. Enclosed in a fluted glass façade, this stunning space provides sweeping views of downtown Denver and access to all galleries on the second level of the Martin Building.
