he Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art made some headlines when its program Art Stop on the Go was made the subject of an short article on Artdaily.org.

You can donate art to museums, give charitable gifts, or your time. There are budget shortcomings in many public art programs and many young artists won’t have opportunities to explore their creative side if it weren’t for such efforts on the part of responsible and informed art leaders of the local community.

My first art show was in a student show, which I took part in at the age some 15, showing some prints from linoleum carvings, and found art, a really cool looking rock that looked like a big dinosaur egg that I covered with iridescent powder.

It will definitely be exciting for young artists to have an opportunity to meet artists and display some of their own creations, thanks to the work on the Colorado chapter of the I have a Dream Foundation and the Family Learning Center.

More than 270 works of Contemporary arts are included in a large gifts to musuems across the country.

The 50 works for 50 states projects was announced this spring, and as the museums apply and are granted thier works, we’re still learning abut the recipients of these generous gifts.

The museum at Utah State University will receive 50 works on , as well as museum at the University of Michigan. The Kress Foundation is known for giving large contributions across the country of art, and this most recent gift of 2,500 peices will no doubt benefit communities and add to the understanding of contemporary art.
