Denver Art Museum
100 West 14th Avenue Parkway
American fashion illustrator Jim Howard's spectacular body of work is as impressive as it is historic. The current Denver Art Museum exhibit features over 100 original charcoal and graphite sketches that Howard created for department stores like Neiman Marcus, Bonwit Teller and Saks Fifth Avenue before photography became the standard for fashion advertisements. His work spans from the late 1950s to the 1980s and shows how Howard pushed equality among the genders and races by drawing businesswomen in power suits in the ’70s and using Asian and African models during a period when many American brands did not. Drawn to Glamour is included in the museum's free-admission day on the first Saturday of each month; catch it before it closes on August 5. Click here for more information.
