The CherryArts Mobile Art Gallery
CherryArts was chosen to be a beneficiary of Colorado Homes & Lifestyle’s Share the Love event. CherryArts is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to provide access to art experiences and support arts education in Colorado. Along with the annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival and CherryArts Festival at Stanley, CherryArts fulfills its year-round art education and outreach mission through programs including the Mobile Art Gallery, Artist in Residence programs and the Janus Student Art Buying Program.
The proceeds that CherryArts receives from Share the Love will go toward its Mobile Art Gallery:
The Mobile Art Gallery consists of original works of art from exhibiting artists and tours perpetually throughout Colorado to schools, libraries, community centers and other public venues. It provides entrance to the visual arts in an accessible, non-threatening setting and introduces the public to various art forms through exhibition of original artwork. To make Mobile Art Gallery a comprehensive educational experience, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival provides several educational tools that can be used in the classroom or as part of a community program. The Mobile Art Gallery Program Guide includes resource and reference materials that foster education of media and techniques the exhibiting artists employ.
Developed for teachers, the Mobile Art Gallery Program Guide includes artist biographies, additional resources, inter-curricular lesson plans and activities. In addition, each work of art is accompanied by a ‘take away’ educational piece written in both English and Spanish.
The CherryArts Mobile Art Gallery art is curated by the Janus Student Art Buying Program. APPLY NOW for free art at schools through this program. Anyone can complete and submit the application on behalf of a school: teachers, school administrators, parents, volunteers or other interested adults. Deadline to apply is March 1, 2017. Information and application can be found here.
Colorado Homes & Lifestyles is pleased to honor CherryArts at our 2017 Share the Love event.
