The Denver Art Museum was one of the first art museums in the nation to collect Indigenous arts of North America for their aesthetic qualities rather than their anthropological value. For the reinstallation, staff worked closely with the museum’s Indigenous Community Advisory Council and with other artists and leaders within Indigenous communities to incorporate Native voices and perspectives into the new galleries.
Join museum staff and council members in a conversation about what this collaboration looked like, from contributing to community voice videos and labels, consulting on the accuracy of content, and developing big ideas in the Home/Land section.
