A Moment in Time: Here

February 10, 2013September 22, 2013
Hamilton Building - Level 2 — Included in general admission.

Denver-based painter Rick Dula, who photographed the Hamilton Building throughout its construction, created hyper-realist painting A Moment in Time: Here in 2009. It appears to peel back the interior walls of the building to expose its steel girders and underpinnings, and reveals the angular skeleton of the structure, which opened in 2006.

Popular with museum members and volunteers, the artwork originally was on view in 2009 and 2010 in the exhibition Embrace!

See Dula and his team create the artwork on-site in the 10-minute timelapse video below.

A Moment in Time: Here will be on view through September 22, 2013.
