This year, the Denver Art Museum joins more than 200 other organizations in the CoorsLight Pridefest Parade. The theme of our float is "Express Yourself."
The design was inspired by the bright colors and patterns in La Musidora (the musical rocking chairs currently on the plaza in front of the museum) and Jeffrey Gibson: Like a Hammer. Our exhibitions crew used leftover paint from the exhibition Degas: A Passion for Perfection and the trailer bed actually has a wall from the exhibition. Check out the slideshow below for photos of our team building the float, and then come out and see the finished product.
Follow the museum on social media and look for the hashtags #PrideDAM and #ExpressYourself.
