Denver citizens voted in favor of the Our Denver Bond measure 2B on November 7. Measure 2B supports the preservation of and upgrades to the region’s cultural institutions. It is part of the city’s 2A–2G bond package to fix city infrastructure in every neighborhood and help Denver continue to be a great place to live. City voters elected to support all seven bond measures, investing in infrastructure as well as public safety, and recreational and cultural facilities across the Mile High City.
Here at the Denver Art Museum, the public approval of 2B will help fund much-needed infrastructure needs included in the North Building renovation project. The $35.5 million dollars within 2B will fund critical improvements—including updating HVAC systems, improving safety standards, upgrading electrical and technology infrastructure, and more—to this iconic and nearly 50-year-old building. The DAM is matching the public investment 3-to-1 with privately raised funds.
Thanks to the voters of Denver for enabling the North Building project to move forward in the most effective way possible, allowing the museum to continue providing access to unforgettable art experiences for visitors now and for the next 50 years. Thank you, Denver voters, for supporting the Denver Art Museum, the Our Denver Bonds, and our city.
