Art Lives Here/ /El Arte Vive Aquí

Exhibitions in Your Community

A customizable exhibition of museum objects is installed in your school or community center for about a month. Kids, families, and educators can use the installation to bring programming to life and reinforce organizational values, spark intercultural dialogue and empathy, and build community through shared experience. We honor the creativity of your community and support learning by offering the exhibition plus optional artmaking workshops with artists for kids and families, professional development for staff, and art supplies for extended lessons.

Creativity Kits

Art Lives Here Creativity Kits were developed to continue to provide access to creativity and art objects during the COVID-19 pandemic. Creativity Kits are free and are distributed to schools and community centers serving elementary and middle school children and families in and around Denver. While we were currently unable to install Art Lives Here exhibitions in our community, we remained committed to providing opportunities for artmaking, intercultural and intergenerational dialogue and community-building.
