The Colorado Project

This is exactly the kind of thing that makes me proud to be a flameworking artist - by and large, the art glass community is filled with caring people who want to make a positive impact on our world.

The 2009 event will take place on July 17 (Denver) & July 18 (Golden). If you're in the area, stop by and take a look - you won't be sorry! The glass artists involved will work together to create a large-scale collaborative project; event proceeds will benefit Learning Landscapes, a University of Colorado Denver program that partners with Denver Public Schools to transform run-down elementary school playgrounds into multi-use parks.

Lifted from The Colorado Project's website:
The core mission of The Colorado Project is to create an environment that will promote and build a culture among Colorado glass artists through philantrhopic projects and events. The Colorado Project is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization.

Goals of The Colorado Project:

  • To build relationships between Colorado glassblowers through philanthropic events
  • To create collaborative glass art installations
  • To promote awareness of Colorado's glass art industry
  • To raise money for local non-profit children's organizations
  • To promote sponsors in our industry
