Stampede: Animals in Art <p>See how animals have captivated artists throughout history in Stampede: Animals in Art. This cross-departmental exhibition will bring together more than 300 objects from the Denver Art Museum’s collection to explore the presence of animals in art throughout centuries and across cultures.</p> <p>The large-scale exhibition will open on level 3 of the Hamilton Building on September 10, 2017, and will expand to level 4 on December 3, 2017.</p> <p>Stampede will create an opportunity for visitors to discover and consider the role animals play through themes such as personal connections with animals, how animal materials have been used in art, how animals are used to tell stories or represent political ideas, and how artists use animals in imaginative ways. It will include visitor favorites such as a Nick Cave Soundsuit, four-faced Hamat'sa Mask, Deborah Butterfield’s horse sculptures, paintings by Frederic Remington and Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as rarely seen works.</p> <p>Visitors will be able to try their hand at drawing in the gallery and spend time closely looking at smaller objects in a “cabinet of curiosities.” Stampede also will feature an interactive space where visitors can learn about the creative process behind the Never Alone video game created by Native North Alaskan storytellers. In conjunction with Stampede, the studio space on level one of the Hamilton Building will become the 3-D Studio, with hands-on artmaking activities related to animals.</p> <p>Stampede: Animals in Art is organized by the Denver Art Museum. The exhibition curation has been led by John Lukavic, associate curator of Native Arts, and Florence Müller, Avenir Foundation Curator of Textile Art and curator of fashion at the DAM.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.

Drawn to Glamour: Fashion Illustrations by Jim Howard <p>Drawn to Glamour: Fashion Illustrations by Jim Howard presents the award-winning editorial work by artist Jim Howard, a well-respected member of Denver's fashion community. More than 100 works on paper showcase Howard's four-decade fashion illustration career, starting with his early advertising campaigns for Neiman Marcus in the late 1950s, and through the '70s and '80s when the fashion illustration industry was at its height. The exhibition offers a nostalgic look at fashion trends set by top ready-to-wear designers, high-end fashion retailers, and cosmetic companies.</p> <p>Neiman Marcus immediately recognized Howard's talent when he worked as an in-house fashion illustrator and assistant artistic director at its headquarters in Texas. He later moved to New York City to become the artistic director of Franklin Simon and eventually became a freelance artist, remaining in high demand by major department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bonwit Teller, B. Altman and Company, and the LA-based retailer Bullocks. These department stores employed Howard to create illustrations for fashion houses, such as Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein, and Yves Saint Laurent, which were most often published in The New York Times.</p> <p>In addition, Drawn to Glamour features eight looks from the Denver Art Museum's fashion collection and four men's silhouettes on loan from private lenders that capture the essence of some of the most iconic trends of the late '50s to the early '80s.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.

CHALLENGING TERRAIN <p><em>Challenging Terrain: Landscape Photography in the 21st Century</em> is a survey of contemporary landscape photography from around the world. The exhibition of more than 80 photographs will gauge how artists stretch the boundaries of traditional landscape photography to reflect the environmental attitudes, perceptions, and values of our time.</p> <p>The works revive historic photographic processes as well as use innovative techniques and unconventional equipment and chemistry to depict landscapes in surprising ways. Taken individually and as a whole, the photographs will show how nearly 40 artists have manipulated materials and processes for expressive purposes, blurring the distinction between "observed" and "constructed" imagery. The exhibition challenges us to see photography differently, and contemplate our complex relationship with the landscape.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
