Denver Public Schools students and teachers created Surrealist self-portraits and poems inspired by Frida Kahlo.
Congratulations to these creative students in grades 7–12 and to their teachers and families!

The Denver Art Museum needs your help!
The closure of schools this spring has created an unprecedented challenge for teachers to overcome. Teachers were faced with daunting questions: How do we teach from afar? How do we connect with our students when we cannot connect? How do we ensure students know we care?
We have seen teachers not only rise to the challenge, but truly innovate during this time of need.
The Denver Art Museum team has completed the installation of its monumental Haida poles, marking the beginning of art installations for a redesigned and reinstalled Northwest Coast and Alaska Native gallery. The reimagined space will be among the first art galleries to reopen to the public in the initial phase of the renovated Martin Building on June 6, 2020.
The DAM’s beloved Haida poles, frequently misattributed as “totem” poles, were the first items installed in the new space.
We’re happy to announce that on June 6, 2020, we will open three floors of art galleries, learning and gathering spaces, and a restaurant and cafe in the renovated Lanny and Sharon Martin Building and new Anna and John J.
In June 2020, the Denver Art Museum will kick off a phased reopening of the united museum campus, welcoming visitors to the first three levels of the refurbished and renamed Martin Building (previously the North Building) and the new, curved glass-walled Anna and John J. Sie Welcome Center.
Championing lifelong learning and creative pursuits for visitors of all ages has always been at the heart of the DAM’s mission.
Is your school actively engaged in promoting the arts? Do you work for a community center focused on exposing youth and families to new creative experiences and opportunities? Apply here to collaborate with the Denver Art Museum to bring the Art Lives Here/El arte vive aquí program to your site.
Art Lives Here/El arte vive aquí is a FREE program created with the Denver Art Museum and your school or organization’s community. A collection of unique museum objects would live at your site for about a month.
With its international reputation as a leader in innovative education and exhibition programs, the Denver Art Museum’s commitment to public access and community collaboration is well known.
Ah, the start of a new school year—freshly sharpened pencils, classrooms organized, and the whole year ahead of you. Wondering what will be at the Denver Art Museum to connect to your classroom? Wondering which works of art you can see in person and which artists you might want to study? Look no further than your school mailbox.
The teacher mailer has arrived! This envelope from the DAM is jam packed with information about field trips offered in the 2018–2019 school year.
In order to close the Denver Art Museum's North Building for renovation, thousands of artworks had to be packed and moved into storage.
