Support the Arts on Colorado Gives Day Dec. 8, 2015

Celebrate Creativity & Support the DAM on Colorado Gives Day, December 8, 2015

Did you know that children who are exposed to the arts demonstrate stronger critical thinking skills, display higher levels of social tolerance and exhibit greater empathy? On any given day at the Denver Art Museum, kids delight in imaginative play and discovery throughout the museum—creating art in the studio, trekking through the galleries with Family Backpacks full of activities, exploring unique programs designed for families, and so much more.

Experiencing and interacting with art is beneficial for individuals of all ages! In addition to enjoying wonderful exhibitions at the DAM, visitors can meet an artist-in-residence and witness the artistic process in person, participate in a class such as “Drawing for People Who Think They Can’t,” or try their hand at artmaking in The Studio.

The DAM is a space for creativity every day—our collections showcase the power and beauty of creativity across time and cultures, and our programs are designed to inspire and unlock the creative potential of our visitors and our community. Creativity is recognized more and more as a tool for success in all aspects of life, and has been proven to fuel the economy of our city, state, and region.

Can you help us ensure the museum remains a center of creativity? The DAM’s ability to deliver these engaging programs depends on supporters like you. Please consider a tax-deductible gift on December 8 on Colorado Gives Day. Schedule your donation here or give anytime through the DAM’s website.

You can spread the word by telling others about #ColoradoGivesDay too. Thank you for helping the museum continue to provide excellent programs and inspire creativity in our community!

Leah Fell was the associate director of development at the Denver Art Museum. Her favorite exhibition was Super Indian: Fritz Scholder 1967–1980.
