The Reiman Foundation CEO Scott Reiman believes that expanding opportunities for children in Denver and increasing access to cultural institutions like the DAM is a worthy investment.
“The Denver Art Museum does an outstanding job of welcoming families and we want to make sure every child has access to the creative experiences the museum has to offer,” said Scott Reiman. “Denver’s arts and cultural facilities create tremendous opportunities for our kids.”
“With this generous underwriting of youth admission from Scott Reiman and Kaiser Permanente Colorado, we can further lower barriers to entry and welcome all children to experience our art collections and creative educational programming,” said Christoph Heinrich, the Frederick and Jan Mayer Director of the DAM.
The program has been lauded by Colorado leaders as a crucial advancement in the cultural education of Colorado’s children, opening the door for children of ages and backgrounds to explore, engage with and discover the arts.
“Scott and his family have once again made a deeply significant gift to the long term benefit of Colorado,” said Colorado Governor John W. Hickelooper. “By allowing children in free…these kids will become the supporters of the Museum and other cultural institutions in the future. It is the classic ‘gift that keeps on giving.”
Scott Reiman is a longtime Denver Art Museum trustee and supporter. Additionally, Reiman serves as a trustee for the University of Denver, and is a board member for Graland Country Day School, ACE Scholarships and the Rocky Mountain Public Broadcasting Network.
