Photography show opens at the DAM

Posted By on Thu, Apr 29, 2010 at 4:45 PM

Tomorrow, the Denver Art Museum will unveil Exposure: Photos from the Vault, a collection of photographs from the museum's own collection. The 50-odd-piece exhibition includes images from Ansel Adams, Diane Arbus, Chuck Close and Eadweard Muybridge. Yes, those are big names, but the photos I saw on the website are what sold me.

Here are some of the works, with details on the right:

Thunder Head by Ruth Thorne-Thomsen

The exhibit is on display through Oct. 31. General admission tickets run $3-$13, and is free for members (remember though, general admission is free for Colorado residents the first Saturday of every month). For more on this exhibit, click here.
