Denver Art Museum trustee and Reiman Foundation President Scott Reiman is dedicated to providing all kids access to a world of art, history and culture.

Last May, Reiman, along with the Denver Art Museum, unveiled the Free for Kids program, providing free general admission to the museum for youth visitors under 18 until 2010.

Today, Bellco Credit Union is joining Reiman in his effort.

In a new, two-year collaboration with the museum, Bellco’s presenting sponsorship will support engagement opportunities, enhanced learning, educational resources and materials for youth visitors in addition to funding for outreach to underserved communities.

In addition to free general admission for youth visitors, the program also offers free general admission for school tours and other youth groups. In its first year, Free for Kids has seen an increase in school visits by more than 50 percent.

To celebrate the program and its new partnership, Denver muralists Pedro Barrios and Jaime Molina are creating an outdoor wall mural, funded in part by Bellco, just outside the 1515 Restaurant downtown. The mural is set to be completed soon. 

On November 22, 2016, local families grabbed their paint and paint brushes along with Barrios and Molina and Bellco and museum executives to create their own mural designs.
