Like many people, the staff at the Denver Art Museum has been dealing with how to stay inspired and creative while quarantined. Here are some of the ways 20 of our team members have kept themselves occupied and energized at home these past few weeks.
In addition to working at the Denver Art Museum, many of our staff members are engaged with the local creative community in a variety of ways. In a series of articles, we'd like to introduce you to some of the creatives and artists on our staff.
1. What do you do at the museum?
I'm a sales and services associate so I help people with memberships and introduce guests to the museum as they get their admission.
2. How long have you worked here?
I started in early August.
