Denverites know the Mile High City is like no other on earth. But what really makes Denver, Denver?
A new History Colorado Center exhibit, Denver A to Z, taps into the essence of Denver letter by letter—“A” for adrenaline, “Z” for zombies, and every letter in between. Discover the heart, the art, the whimsy, and the energy of Denver’s people, places, and moments in this lighthearted and interactive exhibit.
The family-friendly exhibit features fun interactives, such as digital "throwdown matches" between Denver icons, including Mary Elitch, Molly Brown, John Elway, Tom Shane and more. A sculpture of Denver’s famous “Barrel Man,” Tim McKernan, pays homage to Denver’s spirit for sports. A reproduction of Lawrence Argent’s Blue Bear gives visitors an opportunity for a photo opp with the full bear and to learn more about Denver’s robust public arts program. A wall of beer bottles from local breweries honors this growing Denver tradition, past and present.
Early Denver Diorama
In addition, the conservation and reintroduction of the “Early Denver" diorama from the Works Progress Administration, beloved by museum visitors since the 1930s, will take place in February 2013. The exhibit is included in the cost of a general admission ticket.
