Dawn Spencer Hurwitz

Fun with Flowers Demo Artist Dawn Spencer Hurwitz

Dawn Spencer Hurwitz will be in the Flower Studio at the Denver Art Museum demonstrating her creative process October 10 and 11.

Dawn is the owner of DSH Perfumes in Boulder, Colorado and is regarded as a prolific artist and consummate niche perfumer. She uses her education in the arts as a painting student to design her exceptional aromas using the principals of fine arts such as shape, color, light, expression, and texture. As an artist, Hurwitz often draws inspiration from her surroundings and other works of art.

She has collaborated with the DAM on projects for several exhibitions, including creating fragrances for The Impressionist Garden: Scent Experience portion of In Bloom and creating art-inspired scents for Passport to Paris (read a Q&A with her about that experience).

Heather Kraft was a 2015 summer intern at the Denver Art Museum. One of her favorite exhibitions that has been on view here is Barbara Bosworth: Quiet Wonder.
