We can thank King Tut for hogging most of the region's A/E attention these days, and that's fine, but there's a lot more to see at the Denver Art Museum.
And what's coming actually hails from its permanent collection. After an extensive remodel, the DAM will officially reopen its American Indian art galleries at the end of January. According to press materials, the renovated space will focus on Native American artists, studying the pieces on display as artworks, not artifacts (which the museum says was its mission all the way back in 1925.)
And the collection is impressive, spanning Plains beadwork, Navajo textiles, Pueblo ceramics, Northwest coast sculpture and even contemporary painting.
Here's a peek at what you'll see next year:
