BEST ESTIMATE FOR WHEN THE DENVER ART MUSEUM ADDITION WILL BE FINISHED Denver 2006 - November 8, 2006
Readers' Choice: 2007. Runner-up: It's art; it's never finished.
Sometime in the next month or so, the wrappings will come off the Daniel Libeskind-designed addition to the Denver Art Museum, and while work continues on the interior, the exterior will be complete. But even before that, the DAM will announce an official opening date for the Frederic C. Hamilton building, as well as a schedule for the accompanying celebration. At this point, though, the museum will only say that the project is on track for a debut sometime this fall, as has always been the plan. We're betting on November 8, 2006 -- which, not coincidentally, is the day that the 2006 edition of the Farmers Almanac predicts that Denver will get its first major dump of snow. (Hey, things couldn't go smoothly forever.) Fortunately, those Libeskind angles will stand out even in a blizzard.
