Fine Arts Foundation names Robert and Carole Slosky the 2018 Citizens of the Arts
Fine Arts Foundation supporters look forward to the annual announcement of the Citizens of the Arts award. As lavish plans get underway for the 2018 Jubilee, event chair Elizabeth Collins and co-chair Suzy Nelson delightedly identified Robert and Carole Slosky as the twenty-ninth honored recipients. Elizabeth declared, “With the couple’s history of bringing people together to celebrate the arts at the DCPA, the Seawell Ballroom quickly became the obvious venue for their gala.” The Citizens of the Arts award recognizes outstanding volunteer leadership within the arts and will be presented by Fine Arts Foundation President Caroline Simpson during the February 1st event
Carole and Bob Slosky are well known for their thirty plus years of tireless promotion, support and nurturing of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). As exemplary patrons, their service includes thirty years on the DCPA Board of Trustees and the 2014 establishment of the Robert and Carole Slosky Fund for Arts in Education. In addition, they have earned their revered place in our theatrical community as founding members the Colorado New Play Summit, Encore Society and the Women’s Voices Fund. Robert has served on the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts, the Colorado Council on the Arts and was Chairman of the Board for the Cherry Creek Arts Festival.
Their mutual love of all things artistic evolved into a lifetime passion. Throughout almost sixty years of marriage, Robert and Carole have actively collected art, with a primary focus on the contemporary Native American genre. It was an “area we could get our arms around and really get to know the artists personally,” explained Robert. He and Carole visit the Indian Market in Santé Fe yearly where they have nurtured a connection with various artists that express their culture through multiple mediums.
The Slosky’s have two married sons (Brent & Terri and Jeff & Carlina), two grandsons (Adam and Eric) and two granddaughters (Camryn and Rachel). Miss Camryn Slosky, who is a senior at Kent Denver, will be presented at the 50th Fine Arts Foundation Debutante Ball in the summer of 2018.
The mission of the Fine Arts Foundation is to enrich life in Colorado by supporting the arts.
