See Your Pet on the Gallery Wall
For the exhibition Stampede: Animals in Art
the Denver Art Museum invites visitors to share photos of your pets on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #DAMpets
. These photos will appear in the exhibition’s “Beloved” section in a livestream on a framed iPad hung side-by-side with artworks from DAM’s collections. You will find this section on level 3 of the DAM’s Hamilton Building.
Upload your pet photo and use the hashtag and maybe you'll see Fluffy or Spot on the gallery wall! (There's up to a 10-minute delay.)
Creativity and imagination fill the gallery space in the lower level of the North Building at the Denver Art Museum. The DAM is currently showcasing artwork by early childhood students—children under the age of six. All of the pieces on view were created by the students of Mile High Early Learning and Clayton Early Learning. The artwork has been created in a variety of ways with a wide range of materials.
Earlier this month, the Denver Art Museum held the Let's Go Colorado! photography contest. Participants were instructed to follow in the footsteps of photographers Timothy H. O'Sullivan and William H. Bell, whose work is currently on view in On Desert Time: Landscape Photographs by O’Sullivan & Bell, 1871-1874
, and capture an image that reflects both the bones of the Colorado landscape and their own discoveries in the area.
Check out our Facebook page to see the top 30 winning submissions, which will be on view at Untitled: Stop Motion on September 30.

The Denver Art Museum partners with Denver Public Library’s Plaza program to bring creativity and artmaking to five of the local library branches—Hadley, Hampden, Gonzalez, Montbello, and Ross-Barnum. Once a month, students and families in the DPL Plaza program create amazing works of art that are now on display at the Denver Art Museum.
Each art project focuses on a theme that is communicated through the artwork.
