Wikipedia Description: Denver Art Museum
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Denver Art Museum is an art museum in Denver, Colorado located in Denver's Civic Center. It is known for its collection of American Indian art, and has a comprehensive collection numbering more than 55,000 works from across the world.
History of the Museum:
* 1893 Founded as the Denver Artists Club.
* 1916 Renamed the Denver Art Association.
* 1918 Moved into first galleries in City and County building and became Denver Art Museum
* 1954 Moved into first purpose-built building, now called the Morgan Wing.
* 1971 The current building, designed by Gio Ponti and local architect James Sudler (D. 1982), is completed. A 24-sided, 7 story construction, the exterior of the building is clad in gray tiles designed specially for the building by Dow Corning. The building is adjacent to the Denver Public Library, designed by Burnham Hoyt (1955) and Michael Graves (1996).
* 2006 February -5,700 SF Duncan Pavilion, a second story addition to the North Building that will come to receive the bridge traffic from the new Frederic C. Hamilton and the the existing 1971 North Building once the renovation is completed. The Duncan Pavilion is designed as a temporary structure intended not to compete architecturally with the existing historical buildings or the new Frederic C. Hamilton building, but some have said it is the most powerful space in its simplicity.
* 2006 The completion and opening date of a major expansion, the Frederic C. Hamilton building, designed as a joint venture by Studio Daniel Libeskind and Brit Probst (Architect of Record) of Davis Partnership Architects. The new building opened on October 7, 2006, and is clad in titanium and glass. The project was recognized by the American Institute of Architects as a successful Building Information Modeling project .
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.

2006 photos: Equipment this year: I was using all six Fuji cameras at various times -- an S602Zoom, two S7000s,a S5200, an S9000, and an S9100. The majority of pictures this year were taken with the S9000. I have to say, the S7000s was the best camera I've used up to this point..
Trips this year: Florida (two separate trips including Lotusphere and taking care of mom), three weeks out west (including Yellowstone), Williamsburg, San Diego (comic book convention), and Georgia.
Number of photos taken this year: 183,000.
