A couple weeks ago, my husband and I went to the opening at the Madden Museum of Art Inspired by Art: The Building of a Legacy which showcases art collected by John and Marjorie Madden over the last 50 years.
John Madden is a real estate developer and one of his company’s creations is the Greenwood Plaza business park, which combines beautiful architechture, landscape, and sculptures.
This is part of a permanent collection at the museum. It was interesting to see the variety of art they collected.
There were 19th century Italian paintings, a Robert Rauschenberg painting, watercolors by Chen Chi, hyper realistic still lifes by Daniel Sprick, and a variety of sculptures.
The museum also hosts a variety of exhibits throughout the year.
The museum is in the Palazzo Verdi building in Greenwood Village, with a beautiful elaborate 48 foot chandelier, above hand carved labyrinth in the floor, and huge windows showcasing the ever changing Colorado sky.
It is a great place to stop by and enjoy the art. Their mission is to make art accessible, especially to the Denver Tech Center and Greenwood Village area.
If you are in the area, stop by for a visit.
