The CHM isn't alone in shamefully ignoring the great legacy of historic Colorado art. The Denver Art Museum, only a block away at the Civic Center, also has a disgraceful track record in this area--but at least at the DAM, what is on display is worth seeing. The same cannot be said for the CHM, especially when it's offering the lackluster AoA.
