Once again the Denver Art Museum is ready for Valentine’s Day. Join us and other museums across the country to spread the love with Hearts for Art. From February 7–February 14, you’re invited to show your love for a favorite work of art by placing a paper heart on the floor in front of your artwork crush.
Step 1: Pick up a single heart and hold it close until you’re ready...
Step 2: Fall in love with a piece of art and make it official by placing your heart ON THE FLOOR in front of the piece you love.
Please note: Not everything at the DAM is in the mood for love. Hearts and photography are permitted in all DAM collection galleries except Star Wars™ and the Power of Costume, Glory of Venice, and works marked with a No Photography sign. Ask your friendly gallery host if you are unsure.
Did you know? The Hearts for Art project was initiated four years ago by the Oakland Museum of California and Columbus Museum of Art. Since then, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Philbrook Museum of Art, and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History, as well as the DAM, have joined in.
