Never Before Seen Works and Stories of the Western American Art Collection

Tuesday, June 29, 2021 - 6:00 PM

Running Time: 1 hour

The new galleries are a culmination of the Petrie Institute of Western American Art's ambitious, long-term, and strategic programming and collecting practices and a celebration of its twentieth anniversary. Essential to the Petrie Institute's evolution has been the growth of the collection through the procurement of strategic acquisitions and significant gifts.

Old favorites from the collections of William and Dorothy Harmsen (2001), Henry C. Roath (2013), and Dr. George C. and Cathryn M. Peck (2014) will of course be on view, but over the last few years the curators have also focused on diversifying the collection. These efforts have resulted in better representation of historically under-recognized perspectives, including those of women and people of color, working in an array of mediums and styles.

Through these acquisitions, the Petrie Institute can more holistically present the complex and inherently diverse story of western American art. This talk with highlight the variety of new and never before seen works that will be presented in the reinstallation and new approaches to the reimagined galleries.

This lecture is part of the Denver Art Museum's summer series,  "An Inside Look: A Series of Curator Talks."  Please visit for more information and to register for more lectures.
