If you want to spend a few hours immersed in incredible works, head to the Denver Art Museum.
It’s one of the largest museums of its type between the West Coast and Chicago and is known for its collection of American Indian art and other works that span several centuries.
The museum dates back to 1893, and in 2006, it opened one of the country’s most unique structures.
It’s called the Frederic C. Hamilton Building, and its design recalls the peaks of the Rocky Mountains as well as the geometric rock crystals found in the foothills near Denver.
Current exhibitions include:
Then, Now, Next (on display through February 25, 2018)
Then, Now, Next highlights the museum’s upcoming North Building revitalization project. Designed by Gio Ponti, this renowned modernist building opened in 1971, and the exhibit tells of its storied history and future plans. The display includes original architectural sketches, historical photographs, and building models.
