Congratulations to the Denver Art Museum for a Renovation Accomplished
Under the leadership of the Denver Art Museum’s board and management team, an incredible $175 million restoration of the 50-year-old Ponti building and the new Martin Building and Sie Welcome Center has been completed during the pandemic. The citizens of Denver contributed $35 million in bonds and private donors raised $140 million more for the project led by Lanny (board of trustee chair since 2013) and Sharon Martin and the Sie Family.
With new exhibit and visitor space, classrooms and a restaurant, the expanded museum will allow an enhanced display of the permanent collection. It is a major addition to downtown Denver’s arts complex and visitor experiences. The Museum’s director, Christoph Heinrich, announced the public welcoming grand opening October 24.
Well done Denver!
