Make an Impact On Colorado Gives Day

We are proud that the Denver Art Museum makes a positive impact in the Denver community and on our next generation.

You can support the diverse programs at the DAM through a gift to the DAM Good Friends Annual Fund. And Colorado Gives Day is the perfect time to make your support go even further! Schedule your donation for December 6, 2016

This past year, the wildly successful Free for Kids program brought a record number of students to the Denver Art Museum to explore our exhibitions and collections. Your support will help us welcome even more guests in 2017 and continue to inspire them through innovative programs in our galleries and studios. The DAM is seen as a leader in developing and offering hands-on creative activities, and programs started at the DAM have been emulated by museums around the country–like the ever-popular Family Backpacks, which allow kids to respond to our collections through hands-on activities.

An important core of our mission is to share the diverse expression of cultures around the globe and throughout history, which can inspire us to see the world differently. In 2017 artists-in-residence like Wendy Red Star and exhibitions like Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place and Shade: Clyfford Still/Mark Bradford will offer a variety of cultural perspectives for guests to experience, and we have the added benefit of having these artists in Denver for open studio time, Logan Lectures and community projects.

Your contribution will be a meaningful investment in the arts and culture of Denver and will help us welcome and inspire even more visitors in 2017!

Thank you for being a part of our community.

The Free for Kids program at the Denver Art Museum is made possible by Scott Reiman and is presented by Bellco Credit Union.
