The Denver Art Museum is one of the largest art museums between Chicago and the West Coast, with a collection of more than 70,000 works of art divided between 10 permanent collections including African, American Indian, Asian, European, and American, modern and contemporary, pre-Columbian, photography, Spanish Colonial, textile, and western American art. The entire museum complex totals more than 350,000 square feet and serves as an architectural landmark for the city of Denver and the surrounding region.

Featured Exhibition

In Bloom - Painting Flowers in the Age of Impressionism
In Bloom
explores the development of nineteenth-century French floral still-life painting, and features about 60 paintings by Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Vincent Van Gogh, and others.

The colorful exhibition demonstrates how a traditional genre was reinvented by nineteenth-century artists, as the art world's focus was shifting to modernism

Dining Options

Right outside the art museum, you can try the hippest dining experience from popular Denver food trucks. These food trucks have been invited by AAFP, especially for the FMX Celebration. A variety of food will be available for purchase.
