Celebrate with Us
This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Denver Art Museum. Throughout 2018 we invite you to join us as we celebrate the museum's heritage, programming, and vision for the future. Look for #DAMbirthday selfie moments inside the museum, special giveaways, birthday-themed beverages in the Callahan Café, and more.
Sign up for email updates and follow along on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to learn about celebratory moments throughout the year, culminating on December 4 (the museum's official birthday).
The DAM was first founded as the Denver Artists’ Club in 1893. Originally formed by a small group of professional artists with the purpose of “the advancement of the art interests of Denver,” the DAM has since become home to the largest and most comprehensive collection of world art in the Rocky Mountain region, amassing more than 70,000 works of art.View Timeline
