A Field Guide to Flowers at the Denver Art Museum
This page supports A Field Guide to Flowers at the Denver Art Museum, a gift book published by the DAM in 2015.
A Field Guide to Flowers gathers together floral images from paintings, photographs, textiles, and other objects in the Denver Art Museum's collections and groups them in unexpected ways.
In the Guide
Within the guide, find flower-inspired stories, activities, and recipes like these:
- Learn how to make candied rose petals—a decadent topping for treats like rose-pistachio marshmallows.
