The new sponsorship will help provide enhanced cultural learning and engagement opportunities, arts education materials for youth visitors, and funding for community outreach.
Free for Kids includes free general admission to all visitors under age 18, including school tours and other youth group visits. Since the program’s unveiling in March 2015, the Denver Art Museum has seen an increase in school visits by more than 50 percent.
With the announcement also comes the creation of an outdoor wall mural by Denver muralists Pedro Barrios and Jaime Molina. The mural is located downtown outside the 1515 Restaurant at the corner of Market and 15th streets.
To celebrate the new mural and new partnership, local families joined the artists at the Museum on Tuesday, Nov. 22 to create their own mural designs.
