The Denver art collection was founded in 1893, and today it contains about 70 thousand works in 12 different collections: African art, design and architecture, the ancient art of the Americas, art from the Far East, modern and contemporary art, the art of Native Americans and craft of West America.
The first museum building was built in 1971 by the Italian architect Gio Ponti, and recently 150 million dollars were invested in constructing another building connected by a bridge to the previous structure. Together they are a spectacular hostel for beautiful art collections.
We enjoyed a very experiential visit to an awe-inspiring museum. It is highly recommended.
