Arts in Society at Globeville Rec Center

Over 20 weeks in 2017, elementary and middle school youths gathered at Globeville Rec Center for guided art instruction from local artists Anthony Garcia and Victor Escobedo. Funded through a generous Arts in Society grant, the program exposed and educated low-income community youths to fine art history and practices. Kids were taught various art-making techniques and learned about the art business itself, all in an effort to focus their creative energies on positive, community-building projects.  

 

BirdSeed Collective's own Alto Gallery hosted a special two-week pop-up art exhibition in February 2018 featuring work from the program participants. For all of these young artists, this was their first art show and Alto Gallery aimed to make it the best possible experience for them by providing catering and kid-friendly refreshments. 100% of art sales for the show went directly to the young artists.
