A new Denver museum is set to open its doors for a second time, and it’s offering some of the country’s most popular art works to the public.
The Colorado Science Museum is opening for its summer season for the first time since 2004, and the artworks are based on the science that inspired the popular TV show “Discovery,” which premiered in 1997.
The museum will host an exhibition that showcases some of these works from the show’s first season.
“The idea of doing something like this is not one we’ve had the luxury of doing before,” said director David C. Pendergast.
“We’ve had to take a lot of the science and technology, which is pretty advanced, and we’ve used them to make these beautiful paintings and sculptures.”
The artworks include: “Carpenter and Hammer,” a work by Robert Mondavi; “Raptor,” by Jean-Michel Basquiat; “The Wind Up Bird Chronicle,” by Salvador Dalí; “Fog” by George Carlin; “Ace of Spades,” by Robert Anton Wilson; “In the Air Tonight,” by Michael Jackson; “Piggy Bank” by Mark Rothko; and “Wag the Dog” by David Bowie.
The art will be displayed in the museum’s lobby, a collection room and other spaces.
The art will remain in the gallery until the end of June.
The Denver museum has been celebrating its 100th anniversary since 1972.
Penders hopes that this exhibition will help highlight the impact of the show on the Denver art community.
The show was one of the first in the world to feature science and the arts, and helped establish Denver as a destination for art lovers, he said.
The science museum is located in a former warehouse that housed the museum.
The Denver Science Museum was a part of the Denver Science Center.
The museum will serve as a hub for exhibitions on a wide range of subjects.
The new exhibit is part of a series of events that will feature artworks from around the world.
