To inspire emerging artists who will be exhibiting at the Galleries of Contemporary Art at UCCS to reach their potential by providing support for stipends and material costs. If $25K is raised within five years, the fund will be become a pure endowment.
Bill Burgess deeply believed in the transformative power of art, and he enriched the Pikes Peak region for 50 years through his creation of sculpture. To honor his legacy, the Bill Burgess Fund for Emerging Artists has been established to encourage up-and-coming artists to further their careers by providing annual support of an exhibiting artist or emerging artists exhibition at the Galleries of Contemporary Art.
