Rothko | Denver Art Museum

Museums are wonderful indulgences for the soul, right? And I happen to just love photos of people moving through these spaces, soaking in the color, the vibrance, the cultural history and the art.

So you can imagine what an honor it was to be invited with Modern in Denver magazine to photograph the press preview of the new Rothko exhibit at the Denver Art Museum! It is a rare treat to be able to photograph such an exhibition space with such great art -- I'm sharing these here as my way of saying GO check it out!!

As an Art & Art History major in college, it was a thrill to see these incredibly famous, vibrant and abstract paintings in person. Included in the exhibit are also influences of Rothko's -- totally inspiring treasures in their own right.

If you're curious to learn more before checking out the Rothko works for yourself, see the article in the current issue of Modern in Denver, which includes an in depth look at what it takes to put together an exhibit of this magnitude, including a conversation with curator, Gwen Chanzit (being interviewed above for Rocky Mountain PBS). Cheers!
