MEDIA & PHOTO OPPORTUNITY: Tickets to Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature on Sale June 25, 2019

Celebrate the moment at the Denver Art Museum with a Monet-inspired flower installation on the plaza and hands-on activities

Tickets for the Denver Art Museum’s (DAM) highly anticipated exhibition, Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature, will soon be available to the public. Debuting on Oct. 21, 2019, Denver will be the only North American destination for the exhibition presented with the generous support of PNC Bank. Spanning 20,000 square feet of gallery space and including more than 125 paintings, it is set to be the largest Monet exhibition on view in the U.S. in more than two decades. The exhibition’s ticketing moment—scheduled on June 25, 2019—will feature a Monet-inspired installation of flowers on the museum’s plaza, which will be designed and installed in collaboration with Denver Botanic Gardens.

Media members and school-aged children visiting from 10 a.m. to noon will be able to try their hand at en plein air pastel drawing, inspired by the flower installation on the plaza. During this same time, visitors also will have the opportunity to create complimentary Monet-inspired paper flowers and take photos in a specially designed photo booth that will digitally insert them into a Monet painting of their choice. Artist and instructor Anna Kaye will be on site to guide these art activities. PNC Bank also will provide exhibition-themed giveaways.

Starting on June 25 at 10 a.m., the public is encouraged to purchase tickets online at www.denverartmuseum.org to get their preferred timeslots and best pricing available to see Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature at the DAM. Tickets for adult members start at $22 and $27 for non-members when purchased online and in advance. Youth tickets are $5 for ages 6 to 18 and tickets are free for children ages 5 and under. Free tickets are available for youth and school groups, but reservations are required. Discounted rates for groups of 10 or more visitors are available by calling group services at 720-913-0088.
