The 2023 Casa Bonita Art Show


NEXT Gallery is thrilled to host the 6th Annual Casa Bonita Art Show 

Casa Bonita is a 52,000 sq-ft restaurant in Lakewood, Colorado. The restaurant houses a 3-story waterfall, gunfights, gorilla chases, puppet shows, a haunted cave and much, much more.

The restaurant, which opened its doors in 1974, was closed during COVID. Casa Bonita is now under new ownership and is undergoing extensive upgrades and renovations. We are all anxiously waiting for the doors to re-open. 

NEXT Gallery looking for art that tells the tale of Casa Bonita. What makes Casa Bonita part of our narrative? The fables, the facts, the fictions, the legends. Our goal is to create a visual “snapshot” of the Casa Bonita experience.
