Students, become a gallery artist; have your gold pan art displayed in Denver's Hotel Indigo!

July 31, 2017

Hotel Indigo Denver is calling all young, aspiring artists from elementary, junior high and high schools, colleges and local arts programs to submit work to be featured in its stunning new guest rooms. Enhance your artistic portfolio by becoming a gallery artist at Downtown Denver’s newest hotel. Submissions will support local art endowments, and two “Best in Show” artists will win a weekend vacation at Hotel Indigo Denver.

Who? Young, aspiring artists from local elementary, junior high schools, high schools, independent arts programs and colleges are invited to submit original artwork for display at Hotel Indigo Denver.

How?
To participate:
1. Artists must purchase their own 16 in. steel gold mining pans (approximately $20 each, and available at or ).
2. Each piece must incorporate the color red.
3. No symbolism can be incorporated.
4. Share your submission on social media, and the work with the most “likes” will win “Best in Show,” and a weekend vacation at Hotel Indigo Denver.
5. Not active on social media? No worries! A panel of judges will determine a second winner for the same prize!

Where? Submissions may be dropped off at the Hotel Indigo front desk (1801 Wewatta St., Denver, CO 80202).

Why? Artwork will be displayed in guestrooms – with an artist nameplate below each. Each artist will receive a professional photograph of their art, in-room, once hung. Art will also be available for sale, and all proceeds will be donated to local art enrichment program, Bringing Back the Arts

Submissions will be shared on the hotel’s Facebook page, as they are collected. Artists can share their submission, and ask friends for “likes.” The gold pan with the most online “likes” will win “Best in Show.” Additionally, a gallery exhibition will be held at the hotel for artists, and an additional “Best in Show” winner will be selected by judges. Both artist winners will have a choice of  9.7-inch iPad OR a one-night staycation at Hotel Indigo Denver (blackout dates apply), complimentary overnight valet and a $100 gift certificate to Hearth & Dram, the acclaimed restaurant located within Hotel Indigo.
