The 4 Seasons of Veronica Read (2002) is a four-screen video installation filmed over the course of a year, which centers around the remarkable life of Veronica Read, an Englishwoman with a special passion for Hippeastrum, commonly known as amaryllis.
With over 900 Hippeastrum bulbs in her two-bedroom house, Veronica Read's obsession with these flowers is all consuming. Masquerading as a documentary about the Hippeastrum flower bulb, the work is actually a portrait of a woman wholly devoted to the care of these bulbs, which contain the hope of flowering only once a year.

Arrangements of flower-themed artwork will be on view throughout the Denver Art Museum this summer as part of the campus-wide celebration of flowers and in conjunction with In Bloom: Painting Flowers in the Age of Impressionism.
These installations highlight the DAM's vast and varied collections by spotlighting groupings of artworks from all over the world and across time that embrace the flower as subject matter.

The Untitled summer series comes to a close this month with Untitled #70 (Roost). We’ve spent June and July wandering and exploring, and now it’s time to return home, settle in, do some nesting and, of course, some birding too. More
The Untitled summer journey continues on July 25 with Untitled #69 (Uncharted). This month is not so much about venturing into uncharted territory as it is about revisiting what we think we already know. Case in point: pop artist Tom Wesselmann, the subject of the Denver Art Museum’s latest exhibition Beyond Pop Art: A Tom Wesselmann Retrospective. Wesselmann is best known as a painter—his claim to fame is his series Great American Nude. More
