The Denver Art Museum was founded in 1919; in 1971, the museum moved into its new location at the modern-style North Building. The towering architectural icon of the city is recognizable due to its glass panel exterior. Inside, the Denver Art Museum is home to a broad collection of international artwork. Examples of the works on display include modern and classical paintings, an elaborate Native American art collection, paintings of the American West, Buddhist, Hindu, and Shinto art from Asia, and African sculptures.
