We have been to museums from Uganda to Taiwan, and the Denver Art Museum was an unexpected find. They have an exceptional collection of Western American Art. Many of the pieces are historically significant like Buckaroo from Alexander Phimister Proctor. Many of the works like Alexander Proctor, capture a history of the west prior to Europeans. In addition to the Maria Martinez’s American Indian pottery, the museum has a wide variety of historic American art not found in such large quantity elsewhere in the world.
The gallery from South America was also incredible large. I am doubtful there is much art left in any of the Aztec and Mayan ruins, as most of appears to have landed in the Denver Art Museum. Although not as extravagant as some of the other collections, their Asian collection does provide a good cross representation of Asian art culture. Arrive early, to ensure you can enjoy all the museum has to offer.
