Danielle SeeWalker is Hunkpapa Lakota from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota, where she was born and raised. She is an artist, writer, activist, and “boymom” of two, based in Denver, Colorado. She likes to experiment and use mixed media within her artwork while incorporating traditional Native American materials, scenes, and messaging.
At the Denver Art Museum, our local creative community includes some of our most inspirational collaborators. From Untitled: Creative Fusions, to our Creative-in-Residence program, to weekend demonstrations in the Studio, local artists are integral to DAM programs.
Because of COVID-19 health and safety requirements, our interactive Studio is currently closed and artist demos that used to happen in the Studio are moving online.
Rhythm & Ritual: Music of the Ancient Americas
se inauguró en la ubicación física del Museo de las Américas. Esta exposición se presenta en colaboración con el Denver Art Museum y muestra instrumentos musicales que fueron creados de 1000 a. C a 1530 d. C. y que provienen de la colección de arte de la América antigua.
Excerpts of poems graced the walls of Natural Forces
as a way to layer in other voices of the time period to give a richer context of the American experience. For Americans living in the 19th century especially, poetry was a pervasive part of their lives and served as an important way to engage in political and cultural discourses.
Like so many places, the Denver Art Museum’s day-to-day operations have shifted drastically in recent months. While some of our staff have been working from home—planning, researching, designing, collaborating, producing, and more—members of our facilities and protective services teams continued diligent work onsite to ensure the cleanliness of the museum’s buildings and the safety and preservation of the art inside.
We’ve seen various types of heroes emerge in all sectors of the community during the past months.
For many of our staff members, music can often be the key ingredient in getting the creative juices flowing. But we were curious: is the same true for artists?
We turned to one of our local favorites, Suzy Savoy, for answers and asked her what music has helped her to get into the creative mindset during quarantine.
We've all had to find ways to pass the time and stay connected to our passions while at home these past few weeks. For many of us, myself included, that's meant turning to movies and television as a source of inspiration and comfort.
I began by binge-watching far too many seasons of Project Runway
—to better understand the creative process, I told myself—but I decided I need a real
art fix. I've always loved delving into the lives and stories of the artists behind the Denver Art Museum's exhibitions.
Happy birthday to architect and designer Alexander Girard, who was born on May 24, 1907! Girard, Director of Herman Miller’s Textile Division from 1952 to 1973 and an avid promoter of folk art, saw things differently than most. It’s impossible to talk about his designs for textiles, furniture, graphics, exhibitions, and residential and commercial interiors without using words like vibrant or visionary.
As the COVID-19 pandemic reshapes our lives, I have been thinking a lot about Girard’s conviction that beauty can be found amid everyday life.
A look back at the impacts other pandemics and epidemics have had on world populations and their arts.
Several local artists have embraced using masks as an opportunity for creativity and expression.
Untitled Creative Fusions
The Untitled: Creative Fusions program premiered on May 15, 16, and 17 in a digital format with three bite-size episodes for an "at home" experience. Libby Barbee and Becky Wareing Steele, this edition's featured artists, took viewers on a journey through the theme of "Unearthing Place," inspired by Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington
