Urban Arts Fund discussion/reception tonight -- and it's free!
Get to the art of the matter tonight, at a free panel discussion -- complete with refreshments and a DJ -- in support of the Urban Arts Fund. This graffiti-prevention program of Arts & Venues Denver produces unique opportunities for young people to participate in diversionary art and leadership programs.
Since the program was founded in 2008, close to a thousand kids and young adults have participated in Urban Arts Fund programs, and more 30,000 square feet of public areas have been cleaned up or painted with murals.
