June 2021: Denver Arts and Cultural Institutions
The Blogsmith’s founder, Maddy Osman always wanted to be a patron of the arts. These programs get cut first when schools struggle with funding and budget but are so important for celebrating humanity’s shared experience.
As a result, for this month, we’ve decided to donate in the form of supporting memberships to the following arts and cultural institutions in Maddy’s local community:
– Denver Botanical Gardens
– Denver Museum of Nature and Science
– Denver Art Museum
– Denver Contemporary Art Museum
The goal is to maintain support beyond this year to make a bigger impact, perhaps switching around the specific institutions we’re funding next year.
