How can art play a role in helping us see contemporary issues in fresh ways? Find out at Exchange, where we'll take a fast-paced, informal tour led by Denverites and museum staff, followed by a group discussion informed by multiple points of view, including yours.
Come face-to-face with the pressing questions we have about current events, lend your voice (or maybe even find it), and leave with a whole new perspective on how the DAM’s collection and our community connects.
In November, we'll focus on the theme of "refuge," using the exhibition Common Ground: Photographs by Fazal Sheikh, 1989-2013, as a starting point. Join the conversation alongside:
- Frank Anello (Project Worthmore)
- Dee Clarke (Close to Home)
- Chris Connor (Denver's Road Home)
- Rose Tanaka, a Japanese American internee from 1942-1944
- Erica Meltzer (Denverite online magazine)
- Juan Gallegos (Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition / CIRC Action Fund)
Meet in the elevator lobby on the first level of the Hamilton Building.
For more information, contact email@example.com or 720-913-0139.
Before Nov. 10, we encourage you to visit Common Ground and find an image that speaks to you about "refuge." Share your image on social media using #DAMExchange and #DenverArtMuseum and tell us why the artwork connects with you and the theme. Crowd-sourced selections will be worked into the program.
