Scott Reiman and the Reiman Foundation support the Denver Art Museum's (DAM) Free for Kids program. This new initiative opens the door for children of all ages and backgrounds to explore the arts by providing free general admission to the DAM for all kids under the age of 18 for the next five years.
“Scott [Reiman] has once again made a deeply significant gift to the long term benefit of Colorado,” said Colorado Governor John W. Hickelooper. “By allowing children in free…these kids will become the supporters of the Museum and other cultural institutions in the future. It is the classic ‘gift that keeps on giving.”
The Free for Kids program also partners with Kaiser Permanente to include school tours and other youth group visits. This crucial advancement in the artistic education of Colorado’s children is being widely held as a major step forward for children's initiatives and the arts community in Colorado.
“The Denver Art Museum already does an outstanding job of welcoming families,” said Reiman Foundation and Hexagon CEO Scott Reiman. ”We now want to make sure every child has access to the creative experiences the museum has to offer.”
“With this generous underwriting of youth admission from Scott Reiman and Kaiser Permanente Colorado, we can further lower barriers to entry and welcome all children to experience our art collections and creative educational programming,” said Christoph Heinrich, the Frederick and Jan Mayer Director of the DAM.
Scott is a longtime Denver Art Museum trustee and supporter, as well as a co-chair of the DAM Uncorked with his wife Virginia. Additionally, Reiman serves as a trustee for the University of Denver, and is a board member for Graland Country Day School and the Rocky Mountain Public Broadcasting Network.
