Vida Ellison Gallery - Level 7

The exhibition, featuring murals from Denver Public Library’s Western History Collection, will illustrate how Colorado’s murals and muralists tell the state’s history in a vibrant and compelling way. The murals displayed in Walls that Speak span the City Beautiful movement, the development of the Broadmoor Art Academy and subsequent Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, the Works Progress Administration era, the Chicano movement, and contemporary muralists.

The exhibition was made possible by collaboration between the Denver Public Library, curators Deborah Wadsworth and Megan Kemper, and book authors Georgia Garnsey and Mary Motian-Meadows. Other contributing institutions are the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art, Denver, the Bailey Library and Archives of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and individual collectors.
