Art Lives Here Exhibitions

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Denver Art museum is unable to install Art Lives Here exhibitions at this time. We hope to be able to bring these exhibitions back into the community when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, the DAM is assembling and distributing Creativity Kits to continue to provide access to creativity and art objects during these times. Additionally, objects from past installations are available to view online.
