The Boettcher Canyon Staircase meanders up to all four floors of art.
We recently paid our second visit to the new Hamilton Building of the Denver Art Museum which can be seen from the outside here. This most unusual titanium-covered building is the perfect housing for the huge modern art collection which had been in storage for years.
We went on a Members Monday. The museum is closed on Mondays, except on a few occasions during the year members are invited from 3 to 7 for special tours of the galleries and discounts in the gift shop. I mainly went there to buy Christmas gifts but we also took the architectural tour, which was fantastic.
This huge bronze spider sculpture dominates the entry lobby.
Two more sculptures outside set the modern art theme:
Two huge rocks with the public library as a backdrop.
The Big Sweep sits just outside the entrance.
I have not always been a fan of modern art but with a few years of exposure and a greater understanding, I can honestly say I appreciate it a great deal more and absolutely love some of it. In the next day or so I'll show you some that caught my fancy or my sense of humor.
