Denver Art Museum Exhibit Shines Spotlight on Cross-Curation

The Denver Art Museum’s The Light Show exhibit highlights nearly 250 works of art from the DAM’s nine curatorial departments.

The exhibit is co-curated by Rebecca Hart, Vicki and Kent Logan Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Jorge Rivas Pérez, Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Spanish Colonial Art.

This collaborative showing examines the physical and symbolic representations of light in art. The installation focuses on what the Denver Museum says is the “quest by humanity and artists to understand physical light in the natural world as well as metaphorical, spiritual and divine representations of light.”

Artworks on display include ancient sculptures, paintings, photography, textiles and contemporary installations.

The exhibit is included in general museum admission. Thanks to Scott Reiman and the Free for Kids program, general admission is free for youth ages 18 and under.
