“Bringing Back the Arts” is an initiative by First Lady of Denver Mary Louise Lee that is available for all of Denver schools. Lee recently hosted the fourth annual visual arts competition May 22, 2016, with more than 150 Denver Public Schools students ages 7 -18 participating. Students created two-dimensional and three-dimensional artworks that reflect the idea of how “We Are All Denver.” The award winning artworks displayed at DEN reveal how the students artistically explored and visually expressed what makes Denver a great city, the important role each of us plays in our community and how it can be celebrated.
