The Denver Art Museum (DAM) was established in 1893 as the Denver Artists' Club in Denver, Colorado.
The museum has a collection of over 68,000 works of art. Most notable is its collection of American Indian art, and pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial art. Additionally, the museum also has "European and American painting and sculpture, architecture, design and graphics, modern and contemporary, Asian, African, Oceanic, western American and textile art."
Since its founding in 1893, the Denver Art Museum has been enlarging its art collection.
Currently, the museum encompasses 356,000-square-feet of space. When the museum required an expansion, they commissioned Daniel Libeskind to design the Hamilton Building, which opened on October 7, 2006. The expansion is covered in reflective titanium panels and its design emulates the Rocky Mountains and geometric crystals found in the area.
