Thanks to a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the Denver Art Museum will be working with four local creatives and artists to present Cuatro : A Series of Artist Interactions over the next year. Artists participating in this series will create projects inspired by our pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial galleries. We’re excited to welcome our first artist of the series, Carlos Frésquez, a celebrated Chicano artist and Denver native.
Learn about "the culture quest" that inspires his work in the video above.
Share Your Memories & Hopes
For his project, Welcome to the Ancient Future, Frésquez will be working in the Seminar Room on Level 4 of the North Building installing a pyramid inspired by the themes of past, present, and future found in our collections. He also is inviting visitors to contribute their thoughts by writing down a memory from the past or hope for the future and adding it to the installation.
