This year, as part of its mission to attract young people to the visual arts, the Foundation is staging its events at ArtHaus in the vibrant RiNo (River North Art) District which borders downtown and is the heart of the national migration of the millennial generation to Denver. ArtHaus is a new contemporary gallery and flex space that serves as a setting for collaborations, community gatherings, and exhibits as well as studio space for artist-owners Michael Gadlin and Aliki McCain.
We intend to hold a number of events and educational programs at ArtHaus for collectors, private groups and the public to encourage everyone regardless of age or wealth to become a collector and support the living artist. To encourage new collectors, many of the show's top artists, including Scott Fraser and Quang Ho will exhibit specially priced works for guests under the age of 45.
The Schedule of Events is as follows:

The Opening Gala will be held on Saturday evening from 5:30-6:30 PM (Patron Party) and from 6:30-8:30 PM (Cocktails & Delectables). The Gala will be a ticketed event and fundraiser for the Foundation.
