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!

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!!

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.
