Artist Series Corporate Partnerships

Artist Series corporate partnerships

The Artist Series thrills more than 18,000 attendees each year by bringing the world’s greatest artists to Boulder.

One of Colorado’s longest running presenter series, this self-funding auxiliary of the university is well managed and stable, and sold-out performances are common. In addition to bringing these internationally acclaimed performers to Macky’s stage, The Artist Series hosts outreach events in the community and residency activities for CU Boulder students.
