Iconic Series To Be Brought to Life by the Denver Art Museum!

Posted by Jennifer Verta on Nov 22, 2016 2:13:27 PM

It is approaching finals for students all around the country and most of them just want to get through unscathed! Many here at our very own CU Denver are also continuing to buckle down and work hard to crank out those upcoming projects and papers.

The city of Denver is also a creative one, just by strolling around downtown you will have access to tons more artwork, and I found a cool link on the Denver Art Museum website that provides everyone with additional information about more artsy goodies available to view throughout the heart of Denver, so that when CU students, or anyone for that matter go downtown, they may make their very own itinerary.
