Classic artworks, local iconography, and popular culture collide in five immersive murals covering the walls of the elevator lobbies on each of The Curtis hotel’s five floors. Conceived and painted by Denver artist Forrest J. Morrison, the murals reference famous paintings like Hopper’s Nighthawks and Rembrandt’s The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp while including modern elements such as selfie sticks, tattoos, and even the Denver skyline. Check out Morrison’s reimagining of Bosch’s hell from the Garden of Earthly Delights, which he populated with past-their-prime mid-century pop culture icons, before heading to the second floor to see a self-absorbed Adam joined by Slim Goodbody in Morrison’s take on Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.
