I found out recently through my friends' blog that the Denver Art Museum was holding free admission days. I checked the site and found out that they do this on the first Saturday of the month. Our family went and explored this museum last Saturday.
We started off a little late because we had to do some cleaning that morning. We got to Denver at about noon and because there were so many exhibits to see, we didn't get to see them all. Note for next time, just pack a lunch so we don't have to rush through it all. Also, pick the exhibits that you really want to see. We later realized that some of the walking time we did through certain exhibits would have been better used in areas that we really wanted to look at.
Here are some of the photos we captures. Sorry for the low quality of images, I brought my Nikon D40 to this excursion. It's getting harder to tow my big baby of a camera everywhere nowadays.
We found some pockets of interactive stuff for the kids within the different exhibits. That was good as I was getting a bit tired of telling the kiddos to keep their hands to themselves. In this one,they put together their own sculpture.
They even had places where you can listen to music. In this particular spot, we were listening to African tunes because the room was filled with African inspired art and artifacts.
I really liked this floor/exhibit. They had a famous fabric designer (Jacqueline something) display some of her artwork. It was very neat seeing all of the cute creations done on fabric. I picked up a few ideas for papercrafting ideas. *wink*
Last itty bitty note for the museum, Art is definitely interpreted many ways and although I have respect for those that create it, there are certain pieces that I would not want my children to see every again. (Interpret that however you may want)
So that's our latest excursion. Thanks for stopping by.
Till next time,
