Welcome to the Denver Art Museum

Today is November 28, 2021. We are open 10 am – 5 pm.

Help us inspire our community!

The Denver Art Museum is open for joy, wonder, and connection. The reopening of the Lanny & Sharon Martin Building has expanded our ability to serve the community, welcome guests to our city, and preserve a legacy of creativity and imagination for generations to come.

We know the success of the museum is shared by all of us. This year for Colorado Gives Day on December 7, please consider making a 100% tax-deductible contribution to the DAM to help us continue to cultivate creativity and imagination in all our visitors, kids and adults alike. Donate or schedule your gift today and your contribution will get a boost from a $1.6 million fund at Community First Foundation.

Celebrating Indigenous Art

November is Native American Heritage Month. To celebrate, we've partnered with Google Arts and Culture to highlight our expansive Indigenous Arts of North America collection. The museum's collection spans over 18,000 works by artists from more than 250 Indigenous nations, 500 of which are now on display in the newly-installed Indigenous Arts of North America Galleries in the Martin Building.

Explore works from seven of the artists in our collection in greater detail, and discover even more art from museums and cultural organizations across the country on Google's Indigenous arts hub.

Community Spotlights

We've partnered with two local arts organizatons for new showcases now on display in the Martin Building.

The Photography and Memory Project: Connecting Generations Through Stories and Images, a collaboration with the University of Denver's Photography and Memory project, highlights personal snapshots of college students with older adults and the stories behind them. Youth Artists on the Spectrum: A Celebration of Neurodiversity at the Denver Art Museum, in conjunction with the Blue Ribbon Arts Initiative, features artworks from 25 youth artists and three adults who are on the autism spectrum.

Learn more about each spotlight on our blog and catch these artworks on your next visit.
