the denver art museum



A good part of today was spent at the Denver Art Museum- the 1st Saturday of the month is free! Thankfully I have loved ones who are willing to go to museums with me, who follow me around listening to me analyze art, recite historical facts and take lots of pictures. The museum, in addition to their permanent collection, currently has an exhibit called Embrace where 17 artists took over the museum, transformed unique spaces with installations and it was FABULOUS! I have been to lots and lots of museums and I must say that the Denver Art Museum is a wonderful space with a great collection.

In German art museums you are not allowed to take pictures :-( I really like the picture with you and the giant graffitto up the wall.

Loving this exhibition, I bet you didn't want to leave, we have a mixtureof exhibitions that take photos in and those we can't but I think sometimes it's better to be able to take photo after photo because such magical pieces from different peiople really inspire the artists in yourself! I am still on an amazing journey with your Graffiti Chic Class Alisa - it has been absolutely amazing and my style is changing so rapidly - I feel so blessed to have found your course and to have been given "permission" to be free in my art work - thank you from the bottom of my heart - I hope you continue to enjoy your travels and keep inspiring us along the way!

Very cool pictures. I haven't been to the art museum since they've redone it. And I live not too far so I don't really have a good excuse. I'll have to haul my butt over there soon.

Thank you so much for sharing those pictures. I live in a little backwater and I so miss art galleries and museums. I'll take it where I can get it! Embrace looks like a wonderful show.

Enjoy your trip.
