DENVER INFORMATION

The ASECS Annual Meeting is less than two months away!  So now's the time to start thinking about some of the fun things that you can do in between ASECS events and sessions! Here are a few ideas to get your planning started!

DOWNTOWN DENVER

The Brookings Institution ranks Denver as the fourth most walkable downtown in the nation. Save on shoe leather by riding the free shuttle bus on the 16th Street Mall –  it makes everything downtown easy to reach. This area is home to some of the most popular places to visit in Denver, like Union Station and the LoDo Historic District. You can easily spend a full day sightseeing at these Downtown Denver attractions. 

COLORADO STATE CAPITOL

Stand exactly 5,280 feet above sea level (one mile high!) on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol, then climb to the rotunda for a panorama of snowcapped peaks. It is against state law to block the view of the 200 named mountains visible from the dome. Free tours are available on weekdays. 

DENVER ART MUSEUM

Denver Art Museum is made up of two architecturally stunning buildings – one a fortress-like structure from Italian architect Gio Ponti, the other, a structure that resembles a titanium crystal with peaks and shards designed by Daniel Libeskind. Inside, find the world's greatest collection of Native American art and 68,000 other art objects, including works from European masters, Old West classics and phenomenal traveling exhibits.  ASECS Members receive a $2.00 discount on general admission.  Check out the Annual Meeting Program for more information.

Also, while we are holding our annual meeting, Treasures of British Art: The Berger Collection will be on view.  For more information, please visit: https://denverartmuseum.org/exhibitions/treasures. The largest concentration of works in the exhibition are from the 18th century.
