Healing Power of Art

Nov 3, 2017 - Nov 10, 2017

Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel and Children’s Hospital Colorado are celebrating the healing power of art during Denver Arts Week through two exhibits that will be on display at the hotel. The transformational powers of art therapy will tower 18 feet tall outside the entrance to Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. The iconic ballerina sculptures will be adorned with dresses decorated by Children’s Colorado patients as part of therapy. The dresses will be displayed Friday, Nov. 3-11.

Also during Denver Arts Week, a visual showcase displayed in the hotel lobby will represent the Child Life Program at Children’s Colorado. Child Life helps patients and families adjust and cope with the hospital or clinic setting, illness or injury and the treatments involved. The exhibit will bring to life all the benefits of art therapy.

In further support of the hotel’s partnership with the hospital, during Denver Arts Week, Nov. 3-11, for guests who choose to opt out of their cleaning services during their stay, the hotel will donate $5 per reservation to Children’s Colorado, as part of its Make a Green Choice program.
