The Untitled summer series comes to a close this month with Untitled #70 (Roost). We’ve spent June and July wandering and exploring, and now it’s time to return home, settle in, do some nesting and, of course, some birding too. More
The Untitled summer journey continues on July 25 with Untitled #69 (Uncharted). This month is not so much about venturing into uncharted territory as it is about revisiting what we think we already know. Case in point: pop artist Tom Wesselmann, the subject of the Denver Art Museum’s latest exhibition Beyond Pop Art: A Tom Wesselmann Retrospective. Wesselmann is best known as a painter—his claim to fame is his series Great American Nude. More
Summer is… brings the allure of a Colorado summer staple—campfires—to downtown Denver. Made from beetle-kill pine, recycled camping rope, and other recycled materials, these urban campfires offer the perfect place for rest and relaxation. Visitor-submitted story tags create a canopy of leaves, making Martin Plaza a great spot to enjoy the season.
Story tags and pens are provided on the plaza. More
A completely new exhibition in the textile art galleries features more than 20 quilts arranged in nine thematic groupings. Each section invites viewers to look closely at the different themes and variations. Visitors can discover common roots for motifs and patterns and creative differences in materials and techniques. More than half of the objects are recent acquisitions on view for the first time, while others, including The Matterhorn quilt (pictured below), are well-known treasures of the collection. More

The museum can be an amazing resource for Denver creatives; people come to the museum to sketch, search for inspiring colors and patterns, learn about specialized techniques, and more. Many of the programs produced by our adult and college team are based on the idea that the museum can be an active resource in our creative lives. More
