A Special Invitation

The Denver Hospice invites and encourage RMSBA members to paint a mask for The Denver Hospice 2016 fundraiser. While not an official RMSBA function, this is still a worthy opportunity to do a good thing and get exposure.

 The Denver Hospice, a non-profit patient care organization which cares for end-of-life, terminal individuals in the Denver metro area and surrounding communities, holds a major fundraiser every two years called "The Mask Project" and is reaching out to new artists who might be interested in participating. The next event will be the Fall of 2016; a final date has yet to be determined.

Each mask is an oval-shaped form made of clay. TDH usually asks local Denver folks to pick up the mask if possible, as this helps minimize costs; however, if this is not practical, they are happy to mail one to you at no charge. Once the mask has been finished, they do ask that you cover the costs of returning the mask to them. If artists prefer to drop off completed masks in person, they are welcome to do so. Please submit masks to the TDH Administrative office located at 501 South Cherry Street, Suite 700, Denver, CO 80246 at the corner of Virginia Avenue and Cherry Street (east side of Colorado Boulevard).

Any members interested in participating should contact Kristen Tucker, Special Events Manager who is in charge of "The Mask Project," at her direct number 303-780-4517; her email is ktucker@care4denver.org.  She will assign a mask to an artist. The deadline to complete the mask is September 18, 2015.
