The Denver Art Museum will reopen its expanded and reinvented and famous campus on Sunday, offering its guests free admission.
The museum’s renovated campus includes the Gio Ponti-designed Lanny and Sharon Martin Building – the castle-like structure formerly known as the North Building – and the brand new John J. Sie Visitor Center. Additionally, the reopening of the campus coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Martin Building, officials said.
Visitors can enter the museum for free between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. However, visitors are strongly encouraged to book their tickets as there will be a limited number of places available at the museum on Sundays.
The newly renovated Martin Building will present stories from multiple perspectives, cultures and people throughout history.
For example, there is a new gallery of Latin American and ancient Americas art on level 3, while a newly installed Asian art gallery is on display one floor above.
While the Martin Building will offer art lovers seven floors of different exhibits and activities, the new Sie Visitor Center aims to enhance the experience of every guest.
The new two-story Visitor Center provides space for programs, tickets and guest services. It also includes two new restoration options, while an art conservation and technical studies laboratory is located on its lower level.
The museum will also host family-friendly activities such as gifts, a photo booth, groundbreaking ceremonies and a chance to ask questions of the exhibits curators, officials said.
