great for me. We saw the Marilyn Minter "Pretty Dirty" exhibit in this small easy visit museum. The exhibit we saw was both fascinating and disturbing. The acrylic on steel paintings showed spectacular technique with images that were bold, provocative, magnetic and repulsive. There was...More

I lived in Denver for a while before I made it here. As far as modern art museums go, there are bigger, more well known spots. But, this museum is the perfect size, there are galleries in the basement, main floor, and upper floors. You...More

The Mark Mothersbaugh Myopia exhibition was extremely well-done, and was fun for adults and kids alike. This museum has great atmosphere, punctuated by a cute, rooftop cafe with excellent, hand crafted cocktails. The staff was really friendly too. No one was uptight about us bringing...More
