ASG Visits the Mile-High City: Art & Architecture in Denver, Colorado
Nestled along the South Platte River, the Mile High City has been a focal point for the Rocky Mountain Region since the first gold miners made a claim and established the city in the mid-19th century. But the last decade has seen more change and growth than imagined, with Denver attracting 100,000 new residents. These sharply changing demographics, and the city’s unique history as a gateway to the West, have contributed to the quickly-evolving and diverse fine and performing arts scene. Join ASG on a tour of the highlights of Denver’s museum and cultural districts, along with the best restaurants (served with a side of mountain views). The trip will include tours of four museums (Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver Art Museum, Clyfford Still Museum and Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Arts) and a guided architecture tour designed especially for Art Seminar Group. We will also visit the legendary Air Force Academy outside of Colorado Springs, a modernist campus resonating with pride and symbolism via a radical midcentury design whose master plan was developed in the 1950’s by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. We will stay at the historic Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver.
