The Gathering Place, Denver

Dear Readers,

As you may or may not know, I went to Denver for a conference during the second week of March. One of my favorite parts of the whole trip was my visit to the Denver Art Museum which is now one of my favorite art museums ever. I was floored by the art quality, mountain views, mind blowing architecture, and the sheer number of interactive learning and creating areas for both kids and adults.

Now, I've been linking to other paper artists and posting my own work for the last few months--all of the paper crafts you've seen here up until now have been made by people with the luxury of having a side activity and the ability to obtain some pretty nice art supplies. So, there I am in the Denver Art Museum gift shop, and I saw a rack of cards from The Gathering Place. According to the site, it's "Denver’s only daytime drop-in center for women, children, and transgender individuals who are experiencing poverty or homelessness." The three cards I bought and show below were made by individuals at The Gathering Place. The info about their card project can be found here, and I honestly love these cards. If you'd like to contribute/obtain some of these unique cards, you definitely can without making a trip to Denver.
