The JW Marriott in Denver Will Have Some Incredible Art to Show Off Next Week
If you live in the area or plan to pass through Denver next week, the JW Marriott Cherry Creek is going to be the temporary home for an exclusive showing of Impressionist & Modern paintings, American art, 19th Century European art, and luxury timepieces on April 22rd through 24th.
It promises to be a pretty impressive exhibit, featuring more than 15 pieces that include paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Thomas Moran, Camille Pissarro, and Norman Rockwell, plus sculptures by Edgar Degas and Henry Moore.
Put on in a partnership with Christie’s Fine Art, the collection is making a stop in Denver on its way to be auctioned off in New York City later this year. Believe it or not, the painting shown below by Thomas Moran, entitled "The Grand Canyon of the Colorado," was painted in 1904 and is expected to sell for $8 million. $8 million!
This partnership should come as no surprise to those familiar with the JW Marriott and its affinity for art. Currently, it has more than 600 works by Colorado artists hanging on its walls. You can expect all the big wigs from Aspen and Vail to be in attendance next week, but it won't cost you a dime to mix and mingle. The event is free to the public and will be open on Tuesday, April 22nd, Wednesday, April 23rd, and Thursday, April 24th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you want to spend the night, rates start at $239.
