Statement of Health and Safety

Our guests’ health and safety remain at the forefront of our event planning. With this in mind, we require museum event guests and attendees to be fully vaccinated at least two weeks before attending the Martin Building Opening Events in October, including the Unveiled Gala. Alternatively, guests can present a negative PCR or Antigen COVID test within 72 hours. Guests will not be required to wear masks based on current city and state guidelines.

More details on the verification process will be shared closer to the event, along with any updates based on city and state public health guidelines.

We kindly ask that if you are not feeling well on the day of the event that you remain at home and we will celebrate with you at another time!

The Denver Art Museum staff are all fully vaccinated and event vendors will be masked.

The Martin Building

Designed by Italian architect Gio Ponti and Denver-based James Sudler Associates, the Martin Building first opened in 1971. For the building's 50th anniversary, it has been fully restored and renovated throughout, including expanded galleries, restaurants, and rooftop and outdoor spaces offering visitor access to stunning city and mountain views.

It will reopen to the public with a free general admission day on October 24, 2021.
