The Denver Art Society is a wonderful organization. It is trying to achieve so many wonderful things (free art education, ending artlessness, and providing a free space for artists to show their works). My only concern is that the Denver Art Society is trying to achieve too many things at once... or, more constructively, it should be doing all these great things but they should start smaller. Perhaps ending artlessness on Santa Fe, or free art education for a handful of kids. An organization should focus its energy on issues that deal with problems locally before it strives to achieve larger goals. Keep rockin... I know you're gonna make it happen!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

end artlessness and give education to every child in Denver.

Denver Art Society is an amazing, inspiring organization making major strides toward providing a stronger art community. Leading the way in the global art movement, DAS offers citizens a free, uncensored catalog of original, affordable Denver art as well as providing free art education to all interested. A great organization with great ideas taking leaps and bounds to end artlessness and provide art to all!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

observing the gratitude and joy of several artists, teachers, patrons, local citizens both young and old alike taking part in the forum/services/projects that Denver Art Society helps to make possible.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

watching local artists/citizens who might not otherwise have a platform to create and display art, get to share their work with their fellow neighbors: the joy witnessed was awe inspiring.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

giving, talented, inspiring people all dedicated toward the common goal of sharing art with the community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

transform the ability for all people to be a part of a global art community!

Art for the homeless was a great exhibit that helped get the paintbrush in the hands of many less fortunate; of which many created outstanding works of art. The idea is beyond novel and is only one chapter in the growing idea to put more creativity in the hands of everyone.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing creativity come from the less expected sources, proving that everyone has the power to create

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

people willing to help, art lovers to art illiterate kind souls

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

put the power to be creative in everyone's hands. this may be understated, but creativity and innovation go hand in hand and are the key to creating change in any arena.
