Denver Art Museum

Summers in Colorado can be pretty harsh, so when we're not travelling we tend to spend an awful lot of time at home hibernating from the heat. It's not my favorite way to spend this big break that the kids get (although I'm sure the kids love all the extra time playing Minecraft) so I'm always on the look out for places to visit indoors. Recently I visited Denver Art Museum for the first time and it was the perfect place to escape the heat for a few hours. 

If you've been to Denver you'll likely be familiar with the Denver Art Museum whether you've actually been inside the building or not. The building itself is a work of art! Located in a prime position in Denver's Golden Triangle neighborhood, the Denver Art Museum is known for it striking architecture with sharp geometric shapes reminiscent of a crystal formation. Or at least that's what it reminds me of! The art also spills out of the building in the form of sculptures including the large dustpan and broom sculpture near the front entrance. 

During my visit I checked out three temporary exhibitions including "Each/Other: Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger", Simphiwe Ndzube: Oracles of the Pink Universe", and "Paris to Hollywood: The Fashion and Influence of Veronique and Gregory Peck". The latter exhibition has since closed, however the other two are still open.
