Jul 6, 2021


This is an online event. It does not take place at the museum.

Join Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Latin American Art Jorge Rivas Pérez for an exploration into this specific collection, and how it contributes to the DAM’s larger collection of Latin American art.

Between 1892 and 1914, Daniel Casey Stapleton (1858-1920) amassed a prodigious collection of Latin American colonial art while living and working in Ecuador and Colombia. The study of this collection and its history, now at the Denver Art Museum, offers a glimpse into Americans' patronage and collecting practices in Latin America at the turn of the twentieth century.
