Denver Art Museum Free Days For Residents
For the people lucky enough to call Denver home, there are some wonderful free of cost opportunities in the city to see some of the world’s most coveted Modern Art.
The Denver Art Museum, stunning in it’s architecture, is a sight to behold on the street. Jutting angles extend over 13th, casting obscure shadows on the city streets. The outward appearance of the Frederic C. Hamilton Building (pictured above) is a consistent indication of what’s in store for you once you enter.
The building expansion, which opened it’s doors to the public in 2006, was designed with the Colorado Rocky Mountains and geologic crystal structures in mind. The architect Daniel Libeskind is quoted on the DAM website saying, “I was inspired by the light and the geology of the Rockies, but most of all by the wide-open faces of the people of Denver.”
The unconventionally set walls are home for some of the most compelling pieces of modern art you can set your eyes on within the country. The staircase, in accordance with the rest of the structure, jars you, allowing you to immerse yourself in the sterile white landscape of colliding edges.
If the architecture of the museum itself does not make your head spin, the content that fills it will. Constantly keeping space for a number of traveling exhibits, it’s a different landscape every time you enter.
The next free day for Colorado residents is this Saturday, the 6th of October. All you need is your state I.D. card to gain access to some of the most refined modern art in the country. The free days are available to Colorado residents once a month.
The other dates for the remainder of the year are November 3rd and December 1st. If you have not beheld the sights of this Denver landmark, you certainly must. If you have, it is still a great and free opportunity to soak in some Modern Art. architecture
