The Denver Art Society is a wonderful place to see local art! I bought paintings and handmade cards from the Homeless Art exhibit last December's First Friday artwalk. This was a great idea that helped some talented people create art and earn 100% of the proceeds. Even 6 and 7 year old kids made art that sold! Sean, the founder and CEO, is a remarkable person with energy, focus and talent. I also met the kids in one of his classes in Denver. They really looked up to him and seemed to appreciate the free art lessons. Yea for "Art for All" in Denver!
I've been a volunteer with the Denver Art Society since October. I've volunteered for First Friday events and done canvassing/fundraising work. DAS is AWESOME!
I volunteered with Denver Art Society in November for their homeless art exhibit. It was a very nice evening full of goodwill and compassion. I look forward to the second one this fall with bells on. If you ever need another volunteer for anything, I am eager and ready! Thanks again guys!
I'm continually rewarded by my experiences with Denver Art Society's community art projects. My experiences in their classrooms have given me a newfound respect for the importance of art in our neighborhood. We all felt like Denver art was taken to a new level with last November's homeless art exhibit.
