Statement of Purpose

The Denver Art Museum is the largest art museum between Kansas City and the West Coast, with over 55,000 works of art, including an internationally renowned American Indian collection and superb holdings of pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial art.

Departments include Architecture, Design & Graphics; Asian; Modern & Contemporary; Native Arts; New World (Pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial); Painting & Sculpture (European and American), Western art and Textile Art. Architect Gio Ponti of Italy designed the Denver Art Museum's current striking building--a work of art in itself.  A new building designed by internationally renowned architect Daniel Libeskind is scheduled to open in 2006.
(Note: Palettes Restaurant will close September 1, 2004, and remain closed for approximately one year.  Palettes Express, the self-serve cafe, will remain open.)

The Museum's collections include paintings and sculptures by a wide variety of local, regional, national and international artists, incuding: Monet, Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani, O'Keeffe, O'Keeffe, Warhol, Dine, Grooms, Samaras, Corot, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Russell, Rodin, di Suvero, and Remington.

The American Indian collection includes works from over 100 tribes across the U.S. and Canada.

The Asian art collection--the only such resource in the Rocky Mountain region--includes arts of India, China, Japan, Southwest Asian, Tibet, Nepal, Korea, and Southeast Asia.

Nationally known for its in-gallery interpretive activities, the Museum's Education Department also offers weekly programs for families and kids on Saturdays--when admission to the Museum is free for Colorado residents.
