Art & Culture

Cultural Expression and Artistic Innovation


Black Cube

In 2015, Laura Merage founded Black Cube, a nonprofit, experiment art museum that operates nomadically. Headquartered in Denver, Black Cube is committed to bringing groundbreaking, site-relational projects to communities locally, nationally, and internationally. Black Cube strives to establish itself as an organization that supports artists to produce experimental, community-based projects that further their practice.


In 2008, Laura founded RedLine, a dynamic art center north of downtown Denver in the Five Points neighborhood. RedLine focuses on providing access to art for all through contemporary art exhibitions, an Artist in Residency Program, and award-wining educational and community programs. In 2018, RedLine’s annual EPIC Gala celebrated the organization’s 10 year anniversary and honored Laura’s unique vision in establishing RedLine and her commitment to supporting the organization’s mission. 

Community Arts

The David and Laura Merage Foundations also invests in art and community development projects that have deep-rooted impact in cultural education and expression. The Foundation partners with results-oriented nonprofit groups that have a strong education component. The support of organizations such as the Denver Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, Curious Theatre Company, and the Mizel Museum in Denver, as well as programs like LEVYdance, a dance company based in San Francisco, has allowed these groups to enrich the art experience of community members.
