I mentioned yesterday that I was able to visit the Denver Art Museum. I didn’t tell you that the Western Art section was my absolute favorite. Now, there are two sections: Western American Art and Historic Western American Art. Right now I will focus on telling you of the first mentioned – generally.
The quote you see in the photograph is part of a series of cards that the DAM lets you take in the Western exhibit – there are the following categories, related to the different artist quotes: inspred, proud, philisophical, happy, calm, forlorn and cynical.
Since these are all quotes related to the West, I have placed the cards in an extremely deep frame (ala thrift store, painted and refinished) above a huge map of Colorado that hangs in my office.
Thanks to DAM for providing these cards, as they are indeed, inspirational to the Rocky Mountain West no matter what the subject.
This post is already pretty long, so I will share a story with you tomorrow of a worker I met there, and some of my other favorite artists displayed.
