Mission: Leading Denver into the epicenter of the global art movement by building local art schools, creating local art marketplaces, and helping local artists.
Results: Hundreds of kids have attended free classes, hundreds of art students have sold their art at our public gallery on Santa Fe Dr, and thousands of citizens have strengthened their community through our art projects.
Target demographics: Helping put an end to childhood artlessness by providing art education to every child in Denver. Through our education project, DPAU, teachers across the city are collaborating to reach into our often overlooked neighborhood, where they need us the most.
I was just in this morning to see Jen Leong's exhibit. I really love what this place does to encourage local artists and give support to make it easier for people to create great art.
I donated $20 to give a canvas to a young art student and encourage everyone to do the same - if we all chip in we can make a real, lasting difference in the Arts District.
