Scott Reiman sponsors free kids admission at the DAM

Scott Reiman and the Reiman Foundation are proud to support the Free for Kids program at the Denver Art Museum (DAM). The program, which was announced March 25,  will make general admission to all children, including school tours and other youth group visits free for the next five years. In addition, the Free For Kids program will cap youth admission to special events and exhibitions at $5.

“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. “Young people who frequently encounter the arts experience greater quality of life, and we’re delighted that these generous donors share our goal to bring the arts to all youth in our community.”

Scott Reiman believes that all children should have access to high quality cultural experiences and educational opportunities. These two values come together perfectly through the Reiman Foundation’s support of the Denver Art Museum’s Free for Kids program. Designed to welcome a broad spectrum of the community, this family-friendly program fuels creativity, imagination and learning for children of all ages and backgrounds.

Governor John W. Hickenlooper commented on the impact of the program on Colorado children, families and cultural organizations like the DAM, “By allowing children in free, more parents will come, driving up admissions. Secondly, the kids who come, as many studies show, will likely do better in school. And lastly, 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.’ ”

In addition to making the Free for Kids program possible, Reiman has been a longtime and valued member of the Denver Art Museum community. Since 2000, he has provided the Museum with invaluable leadership and guidance through his service as a Denver Art Museum trustee. He is also the namesake of the Reiman Bridge that connects the Denver Art Museum’s Hamilton and North buildings.

“Scott Reiman’s gift is extremely generous both to the museum and the entire community. He has opened the door to provide free access to the museum for youth 18 and under, which is so important to the young people and our entire community in the future,” remarked Frederic C. Hamilton, Chairman Emeritus of the Denver Art Museum and namesake of the Hamilton Building, about the long term impact of the program.
