The new jewel of Denver



So last night I got a sneak peak of the new Hamilton Building of the Denver Art Museum. I am so proud of this city. We are now world class! Not only is the outside fab, the art inside is some of the most inovative I have seen in a long time. I fell in love with the Logan exhibit of art from post iron curtain artists from Eastern Eurpoe and Asia. It is colorful and outside the box. It offically opens on October 7th and I strongly recomend a visit. For more info go to http://www.denverartmuseum.org/home

I've been eagerly anticipating the opening of the new wing almost as much as the Sunflower Market on Wolff/38th (arriving April 2007, by the way).

April 2007! Sunflower Market needs to hire the build team at 4-bucks. They got that 44th & Federal Starbucks up in like 90 days. Any idea when the Vitamin Cottage is suppose to open in the old pool hall on 15th & Platte?

The Vitamin Cottage website says November 2006! I didn't even know there was a new *$ (4-bucks) at 44th & Federal.... The important question, tho, is whether its a drive thru?

It is a drive-thru. (Just in time for the Federal-Speer-29th Ave construction project from HELL)

SNG- To balance the fact that rebeckspe & I took over your post with important neighborhood issues (grocery store development & access to coffee from your car)- I have added a little photo of the DAM model to your lovely post. Jeepboy & I are jazzed to see the new DAM- especially now with the endorsement of SNG!

Ok, I'm loving rebeckspe! I am horrified by the "outside fab" of the new Hamilton Building. Horrid! I have to live near the giant cartoon anvil that fell on my neighborhood. U-G-L-Y! I have heard that the art on the inside is fabulous though.

Having nighmares about the Komen Run that will also invade my neighborhood with soccer moms from the burbs this weekend too.

Lots of scary stuff on Capitol Hill.

Update: went to the DAM Party on the Edge on Friday night. *Love* the expansion! Going back next weekend when the crowds dissipate for a closer look while wearing comfortable shoes.
