If Denver wasn’t already on the top of the list of best places to live, we are pretty sure this seals the deal for Colorado families. The Denver Art Museum (DAM) announced a Free for Kids program, granting more children access to art than ever before. The new program will offer free general admission to all youth ages 18 and under for the next five years, thanks to a five-year gift from Scott Reiman and the Reiman Foundation. A one-year grant from Kaiser Permanente Colorado will also support the Free for Kids program. This exciting new program will run until the spring of 2020. DAM hopes to secure funds to make this the standard for youth in the future.
If this wasn’t enough, Free for Kids at the Denver Art Museum will fund general admission to ALL children, which includes school tours and other youth group visits. This incredible access opportunity also will seed a new transportation fund, providing bus funding assistance for Title I schools. Free for Kids funded admission gifts also enable the museum to cap youth pricing for all special ticketed exhibitions at $5 for the next five years. Meaning, speciality exhibits are no longer just for the elite.
