Degas Exhibit at The Denver Art Museum

The architecture of the Hamilton Building is in itself a work of art. Designed by Daniel Libeskind who is well known for edgy, geometrically interesting buildings around the world including The Jewish Museum in Berlin and London Metropolitan University. He is also known for being chosen to oversee the rebuilding of the World Trade Center in New York. The Polish born son of Holocaust survivors said he took his cue from the nearby Rocky Mountains in designing the newer building of The Denver Art Museum.

The gift shop has a beautiful display, sure to capture anyone who imagined themselves in the paintings or sketches of dancers.

Some highlights from my visit to The Denver Art Museum special Degas exhibit.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.
