Since coming to the Denver Art Museum from Germany, director Christoph Heinrich has been a workaholic, refitting the permanent-collection galleries devoted to modern and contemporary art and putting together a couple of major shows, including Embrace!, an over-the-top, pull-out-all-the-stops installation that's garnered national attention. The title reflects his goal of having artists embrace the revolutionary interior of the four-story Hamilton Building; to pull it off, Heinrich selected seventeen artists, including three from Colorado: John McEnroe, Rick Dula and Timothy Weaver. The resulting show makes this addition a far more accessible space — and one that the community, as well as artists, can truly embrace.
