Salon du Musée to Exhibit All Denver Art Museum Genres
We are thrilled to announce the new format for Salon du Musée. Following
last year’s success, the Salon will be again be held in the Denver Art
Museum (DAM) on October 16, 2010. The exhibition will feature artworks
that reflect the diverse genres represented in the museum’s collection,
including: Architecture, Design & Graphics; Asian Art; Modern & Contemporary
Art; Native Arts; Painting & Sculpture; Photography; New World; Textile
Art; and Western American Art.
With works selected by Denver Art Museum curators, the exhibition and auction will feature significant artworks from each genre. Each curator has invited artists to submit a select number of works, resulting in an exhibition of over eighty works ranging in value from $250 up to $100,000. The auction is a unique opportunity to understand the breadth of the museum’s collections represented through new objects from each genre, while adding to your personal collection with vetted curator selections.
The exhibition will be held from October 7th through October 16th with the
artwork auctioned among hundreds of museum supporters at the lively Salon
Soiree and Fine Art Sale on October 16th. The Presenting Sponsor is First
Western Trust Bank, a long-term supporter of the exhibition. Event Chairs
are Buck & Janelle Blessing.
Salon du Musée is modeled after European
art salons of the late nineteenth century and serves as a public forum for
promoting the exchange of ideas between artists and viewers. The Salon
du Musée exhibition will be open
to the public from October 7th through October 16th, 2010 during regular museum
We look forward to celebrating Salon du Musée at the Denver Art Museum
