The Denver Art Museum’s “Golden Years” exhibit is the only museum in the United States that has been a home for more than 100 years.
In that time, it has hosted more than 10,000 visitors.
Its collection has grown from 4,000 pieces to nearly 25,000, which is a major milestone for an institution that began in 1923 as a small-scale studio.
The Denver Art Department’s Golden Years exhibit opened to the public on Oct. 2.
During that opening, museum staff showed a clip of the late David Weisman, who helped design the exhibition’s iconic wooden sculptures, including the statue of the artist himself.
The exhibit was a joint effort with the Denver Contemporary Art Museum.
The Weisman sculpture is currently on display in the Museum of Contemporary Art.
“It’s been the golden years of Denver art,” said museum president and chief curator of the Art Museum Stephen Ritchie.
“We’ve been able to showcase some of the greatest artists and designers of the 20th century.
It’s been a wonderful time.”
In the meantime, the museum has been hosting art exhibitions at its new museum in Aspen.
It is currently in the process of opening its new galleries and exhibitions, which will begin in 2020.
“We had a pretty good idea that we were going to be opening at some point this year, but now we have a lot more to offer,” Ritchie said.
The museum is planning to continue to offer art classes through the summer and have a new series of exhibitions for art lovers starting in the fall.
The Denver Contemporary Arts Museum is also continuing its Golden Years program and plans to offer an exhibition of artwork created in the 1980s.
Ritchie said the new exhibit is a “win-win” for the museum and the city.
“The new exhibits are an incredible opportunity for our community to come together and learn more about this great art form,” he said.
“I think people are going to really appreciate it and really enjoy seeing it and being a part of it.”
