The Denver Art Museum tapped their own talent and staff to create the new branding and logo which debuted on September 14, 2020. The new branding emphasizes that art is for “everyone” and should be welcoming and accessible for all. The design was originally planned to coincide with the opening of the renovated Martin building, but the building’s opening is currently on hold due to COVID – 19.
This new brand and logo was a collaborative process led by Tasso Stathopulos, Senior Manager of Brand & Design. The YouTube announcement shares the concept of disbanding pretentious notions of “Art” and instead sharing “art” as it connects us all.
In addition to the new logo, Denver Art Museum also unveiled a new cohesive look for their member magazine and online website.
As the Denver Art Museum continues to evolve, Scott Reiman is proud to support them and their Free for Kids program.

One of the world’s most recognized artists is making his mark on Denver.
On view now through January 6, 2019 at The Denver Art Museum is Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker. The DAM is the sole venue in the U.S. to display Dutch Master Rembrandt van Rijn’s work and offers visitors a peek into his life and career of printmaking. The exhibition also coincides with the 350th anniversary of the artist’s death (1606–1669).
Nearly 100 prints from Rembrandt’s 40-year career showcase his approach to printmaking and how he combined the three principle methods of intaglio: etching, drypoint and engraving. Works on view include self-portraits and portraits of prominent Dutch figures as well as biblical, still life, allegorical, genre and landscape artworks.
Although the exhibition centers on Rembrandt’s printmaking, 17 drawings and several paintings are also on view.
The exhibition is included in general admission and thanks to the Free for Kids program, is free for youth ages 18 and under. Scott Reiman and the Reiman Foundation sponsor the Free for Kids program and support initiatives that offer kids access to art and cultural experiences.
The Denver Art Museum has set a date to begin work on its $150 million renovation plan to expand and update the museum’s North Building.
On November 19, 2017, the North Building will close so art can be removed and preparation for construction can begin on November 20.
According to the museum, the renovation project includes construction of a 50,000-square-foot, two-story Anna and John J. Sie Welcome Center located where the Palettes restaurant is today. The center will feature a restaurant and cafe, the museum’s primary conservation lab as well as programming and event space.
The project will also construct a seventh-floor terrace in the North Building with outdoor access for visitors, expand gallery space for the museum’s design and Western American art collections, create new youth and education facilities and update disabled-access and other building operating systems.
