Artist Programs

The Denver Art Museum is proud to provide opportunities to work with and showcase works of art from local artists within and around the museum.

Creative Classes

Our popular Creative Classes for adults will return in January 2022. We are currently seeking educators to develop and instruct these classes. If you have experience teaching adults and maintain a creative practice, we encourage you to learn more about the opportunity and send in your application by May 28, 2021.

Martin Building Mural

Denver-based artists Emily Hope Dobkin and Olive Moya were selected to create a new large-scale mural, which will be prominently featured on the main level of the Martin Building when it reopens October 24, 2021. The selection followed a request for proposals process calling for submissions to create a mural telling a story of the Denver metro area’s creative scene. The new piece will serve as a beacon of welcoming to students, families, and visitors of all ages.

Untitled: Creative Fusions at Home

Untitled: Creative Fusions is a collaboration with local artists and creatives to create an evening full of events, performances, experimentation, and one-of-a-kind experiences. Throughout the night, artists will showcase their work while providing a hands-on and engaging atmosphere.

Due to COVID-19, Untitled: Creative Fusions have moved to an online platform where viewers are able to watch the program from the comfort of their homes.

Window Program

While the Studio is closed, we are still engaging with local artists through the projects created for the windows in the Martin Plaza. Our latest collaboration with local artist Chinn Wang, A is for..., invites visitors to pause and reflect on how the meaning of the artwork is shaped by their own personal experiences.

Through this series, local creatives from a variety of disciplines push the notions of what a museum can be—for visitors, for the creative community and for the institution itself. Things will get wildly creative and maybe a little messy too!
