Hamilton Building - Level 2
Included in general admission

In conjunction with Nick Cave: Sojourn, contemporary artist Nick Cave transformed Precourt Discovery Hall into a whimsical, interactive environment for family visitors. Come play and watch as Cave’s Soundsuits spring to life through movement and dance. Then decorate the figures in the installation with colorful felt shapes and animals to complete the artist’s imaginative creations.

Second Skin is included with general admission.

Nick Cave: Sojourn is organized by the Denver Art Museum. This exhibition is made possible through the significant support of Vicki and Kent Logan, U.S. Bank, and PB&K Family Foundation. Additional funding is provided by the generous donors to the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Promotional support is provided by 5280 Magazine, CBS4, and The Denver Post.
