arts education programming
DAVA is hosting its annual spring fundraiser on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 from 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. A cocktail hour will be followed by dinner and a program where the theme is Pathways to the Future. DAVA students will present their own self-produced short films, model paper fashions that they created, and receive awards. The Museum’s Gems and Minerals Exhibit will be open to guests.
DAVA recently completed the renovation and expansion of their facility. With 8300 square feet of dedicated arts education capacity, DAVA will be celebrating the accomplishments of youth and the possibilities this highly functioning arts building brings to the kids in our community.
