The Light Show

Denver, CO 80204

Sat-Thu 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Fri 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
Free with admission.

This 250-piece exhibit is a testament to the variety of ways that light—in all its forms—plays an important role in art. See renowned photographer Ansel Adams’ Moonrise, in which the lensman employs his signature stark black-and white-hues to depict the moon ascending over a mountain, and Fred Wilson’s The Way the Moon’s in Love with the Dark, an imposing 4.5-by-6.5-foot glowing Murano glass chandelier. A myriad of religious relics will also showcase the natural phenomenon’s use as a divine presence, such as in a circa-1340 depiction of Madonna with child.
