About Us

Founded in 1893 as the Denver Artist’s Club, the Denver Art Museum today is one of the largest art museums between Chicago and the West Coast. The museum’s global art collections represent cultures around the world, with more than 70,000 works of art in 12 collections, including African art, architecture and design, art of the ancient Americas, Asian art, European and American art before 1900, Latin American art, Oceanic art, modern and contemporary art, photography, textile art and fashion, Indigenous arts of North America, and western American art. The museum’s global collections also reflect work by artists from Denver and the Rocky Mountain region—and provide invaluable ways for the community to learn about the world.

Mission

To enrich the lives of present and future generations through the acquisition, presentation, and preservation of works of art, supported by exemplary scholarship and public programs related to both its permanent collections and to temporary exhibitions presented by the Museum.

Vision

While our commitment to our core mission remains unchanged, our work and plans are guided every day in our vision to enrich lives by sparking creative thinking and expression.

We believe creativity:

  • is a powerful force that introduces us to new experiences, broadens our thinking, recognizes the uniqueness in each of us, and illustrates the things we share.
  • is vital to all ages and all stages of life and that it is an essential element for lifelong satisfaction and well-being.
  • inspires communities, conversations, and connections.
