Spur brings learning to life
for everyone

Made up of three buildings that focus on food, water, and health, the Spur campus will be created by a university but will offer an education open to anyone and everyone. But Spur is more than a physical location, it’s a hub — a network — to connect people across the state, region, and world.

Spur is a destination for art

“Whirlpool” by Denver resident Anthony Garcia Sr., owner of Birdseed Collective, is among the eight art installations selected for Spur. Four of the artists are from Colorado, three are from elsewhere in the United States, and one artist is from England — and their art installations will range from sculpture and light displays to murals and street art.
