The Denver Art Museum's most recent expansion, the 146,000-square-foot Frederic C. Hamilton Building, opened in October 2006. With this addition, the 356,000-square-foot Denver Art Museum complex includes collection gallery space, three temporary exhibition venues, and the Lewis I. Sharp Auditorium.
Continuing a legacy of bold architecture, the Denver Art Museum commissioned architect Daniel Libeskind whose design for the Hamilton Building recalls the peaks of the Rocky Mountains and geometric rock crystals found in the foothills near Denver. The building is covered in 9,000 titanium panels that reflect the Colorado sunshine. To learn more, visit the Hamilton Building website at http://expansion.denverartmuseum.org/
