Examples of portraiture, from the sixteenth-century work of Bernardo Buontalenti through contemporary pieces by Bill Amundson, Richard Phillips and Chuck Close, are on display in a Denver Art Museum exhibit called Face to Face. Following drawing through four centuries of art, these wonderful examples of the portrait in some cases have their own psychology or soul, says DAM director Christoph Heinrich. All have a unique story to tell, and all are from collections right here in Colorado.
The exhibit is on the third floor of the museums Hamilton building, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway. Tickets range from $8 to $13 for adults, with discounts available for children, students and seniors. For additional information, call 720-865-5000 or visit www.denverartmuseum.org.
