Apply for Art Lives Here/El arte vive aquí

Is your school actively engaged in promoting the arts? Do you work for a community center focused on exposing youth and families to new creative experiences and opportunities? Apply here to collaborate with the Denver Art Museum to bring the Art Lives Here/El arte vive aquí program to your site.

Art Lives Here/El arte vive aquí is a FREE program created with the Denver Art Museum and your school or organization’s community. A collection of unique museum objects would live at your site for about a month. Children, staff, and families can enjoy the exhibition to help bring your programming to life. Art Lives Here reinforces organizational values, sparks intercultural dialogue and empathy, and builds community through shared experience.

We recognize that each community has unique assets, and we work to honor and support these throughout the program with a choice-based planning approach.

If you think your community would love this program and you meet the criteria listed below, please complete an application to share more about your organization and why you want to bring this experience to your site. Your application will then be entered into a lottery. Please apply by April 12, 2019. We will draw our 2019-2020 lottery winners on April 15, and contact all applicants immediately.

1) Title I designation or equivalent socio-economic level, required
