The Denver Art Museum needs your help!
The closure of schools this spring has created an unprecedented challenge for teachers to overcome. Teachers were faced with daunting questions: How do we teach from afar? How do we connect with our students when we cannot connect? How do we ensure students know we care?
We have seen teachers not only rise to the challenge, but truly innovate during this time of need.
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.
Ah, the start of a new school year—freshly sharpened pencils, classrooms organized, and the whole year ahead of you. Wondering what will be at the Denver Art Museum to connect to your classroom? Wondering which works of art you can see in person and which artists you might want to study? Look no further than your school mailbox.

On April 14, people all over the world will visit museums and galleries to look at art slowly, lingering with five works of art for 10 minutes each and then joining back up for a conversation about the experience.
