Like many people, the staff at the Denver Art Museum has been dealing with how to stay inspired and creative while quarantined. Here are some of the ways 20 of our team members have kept themselves occupied and energized at home these past few weeks.
In addition to working at the Denver Art Museum, many of our staff members are engaged with the local creative community in a variety of ways. In a series of articles, we'd like to introduce you to some of the creatives and artists on our staff.
1. What do you do at the museum?
I'm a sales and services associate so I help people with memberships and introduce guests to the museum as they get their admission.
2. How long have you worked here?
I started in early August.
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.
