Passport to Paris at the Denver Art Museum is a monumental, brilliantly thought out, victory for Denver. The quality, scale and intelligence of the exhibition goes beyond expectations of enjoying beautiful works of art.

Court to Café: Paul Cézanne, House in the Country, about 1877-79.

It invigorates the senses with music, fashion, the written word, domestic arts, video and fine art. It educates as it inspires, celebrating 300 years of French culture in a lively and joyful journey. Each of the three exhibits stand on their own, each with dramatically beautiful staged settings. Enjoyed together, you’ll be overwhelmed and thrilled.

Tips:

  • Plan a whole day at the museum to fully enjoy the exhibits!
  • Wear comfy shoes, and take breaks in between the three shows. Sit and enjoy the paintings and the beautiful special edition books scattered about.
  • The exhibit “Court to Café” offers a “must have” audio tour – fun and informative.
  • Spend time in the Drawing Lab to express your inner artistic spirit.

The Passport to Paris exhibit runs through February 9, 2014. However, The Denver Art Museum (DAM) has announced the extension of Nature as Muse: Impressionist Landscapes from the Frederic C. Hamilton Collection and the Denver Art Museum, one of the trio of exhibitions included in Passport to Paris. Following the February 9 closing of Passport to ParisNature as Muse—the exhibition that features the DAM’s recent landmark gift—will reopen on February 12 and remain on view through March 23, 2014. Entry to the exhibition will be included in general admission.

And consider making your French experience an all-encompassing one by taking in all of the French-inspired activities and places in Denver. We presented a weekend’s worth of inspiring ideas in our recent blog on the subject.
