July 2014 Summer Family Happenings At The Denver Art Museum

Horses on Parade

There’s lots of family fun at the DAM this summer. The plaza installation Summer Is … celebrates the season,  Jason Rogenes: V3H1CL3 invites families to play with an interactive soundscape, and the Sculpture Studio offers a chance to explore and create every day the museum is open. The Family Activity Cart is out daily for kids and parents to checkout a backpack or Art Tube.

FREE First Saturday: July 5, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.

On the first Saturday of every month, enjoy the museum’s art collections and non-ticketed exhibitions without spending a dime! Free museum admission tickets are available on-site starting at 10 a.m. Free First Saturdays are sponsored by Target and made possible by the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).

Create Playdate: Wiggle: July 9, 10 a.m.–1 p.m.
