The Denver Art Museum is devoted to the display of international art and design from the pre-Columbian era to the present day. Founded in 1893, it is one of the largest museums between Chicago and North America’s west coast. The site is split across three main buildings, including the 210,000 square-foot North Building designed by Italian architect Gio Ponti in 1971. Alongside a carefully nurtured permanent collection containing more than 70,000 artworks and a diverse programme of temporary exhibitions, it runs numerous public initiatives including artist residencies, mental health workshops, and family art sessions.
