The American Museum of Western Art Joins Denver Public Library’s Museum and Cultural Pass Program!

We are excited to announce that the The American Museum of Western Art has partnered with the Denver Public Library to offer DPL card holders no cost entry to this unique museum experience.

Located in downtown Denver, The American Museum of Western Art – The Anschutz Collection, provides access to one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of Western art in one of the most unique settings in the country, the historic Navarre Building. The Collection is displayed in salon style, which maintains the Navarre’s 19th century origins and allows the Museum to exhibit a survey of Western American art and history.

The Museum’s permanent exhibition includes over 300 paintings, drawings, and sculptures by more than 180 artists. The artists and styles represented span nearly 200 years of American history and includes everything from early American portraiture by Rembrandt Peale and Charles Bird King to Hudson River School artists like Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt. Also represented are multiple works by renowned interpreters of the West, Frederic Remington, and Charles Russell, as well as more than 30 works spanning the careers of Taos Society artists like Ernest Blumenschein and Walter Ufer. Early American modernists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and John Marin are displayed in close proximity to mainstays of American illustration such as N.C. Wyeth and Maxfield Parrish. Contemporary Western paintings by Kim Wiggins and Fritz Scholder are juxtaposed with Regionalists like Thomas Hart Benton, while Abstract Expressionist, Helen Frankenthaler, provides a striking contrast to contemporary visions by Ralph Brownell McGrew and Fritz Winold Reiss.  

Admission is valid for a party of up to 4, no children under 8 years old will be admitted to the museum.
