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.

If you work at a Title 1 school or community center in Denver and are interested in hosting an Art Lives Here exhibition in 2022, please fill out the application below.
