Martin Museum Residence: An evening of exceptional art and architecture

Saturday, September 10, 2022

The Denver Architecture Foundation is pleased to extend an exclusive invitation for a reception featuring one of the finest art collections and architectural spaces in Denver.

Experience the penthouse residence of Sharon and Lanny Martin, located in the Daniel Libeskind-designed Museum Residences. Steps from the Denver Art Museum’s iconic Frederic C. Hamilton Building, the architecturally significant residence is also home to the Martin family’s collection of modern and contemporary art. Explore works by some of the biggest names in the art world—from Calder to Still to Warhol—in an intimate setting. To complete the evening, enjoy drinks and cuisine by Kevin Taylor Restaurant Group.

The evening’s distinguished speakers will discuss the architecture of the Museum Residences and the Denver Art Museum’s Frederic C. Hamilton Building. Hear from Joe Lear and Guadalupe Cantu, members of the design team at Davis Partnership Architects, who worked alongside Studio Libeskind to make the project a reality. George Thorn, President & Founder of Mile High Development, will provide insight into the development of this high-profile project, including the plaza and adjacent Art Hotel and Cultural Center Complex Garage.

Space at this distinctive reception, held for the first time since 2019, is limited. RSVP to experience some of the finest architecture, art and cuisine Denver has to offer.

Cocktail/business attire.

About the Sharon and Lanny Martin Art Collection:
The artists represented in the Martin family collection are a who’s who of America’s greatest. Works by Clyfford Still, Alexander Calder, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Dan Flavin and John Chamberlain were selected to take advantage of the extraordinary spaces in the Martins’ penthouse. Continuing the Martins’ original vision of merging great contemporary art and architecture, the collection has expanded over the years to include important recent works by Mary Corse, Pat Steir and Alex Katz, among others.
