Now three major museums in the region the Denver Art Museum, as well as the art museums in Phoenix and Albuquerque have collaborated to create In Contemporary Rhythm: The Art of Ernest L. Blumenschein, which opens today at the DAM, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway. Three of the works in the 66-piece ex-hibit including the stunning Eagle Fan come from the DAMs own collection; the other paintings, sketches and illustrations are from museums and private collections across the country, according to the DAMs Rose Beetem.
The show will be up in the Gallagher Family Gallery on the first floor of the Frederic C. Hamilton building through February 8, when it will travel on but not by wagon. Imagine: For want of a wheel, Colorado may have lost its place as an artist colony. For information on DAM exhibits, hours and admission prices, go to www.denverartmuseum.org or call 720-865-5000.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 8. Continues through Feb. 8, 2008
