January Local Events Newsletter
Welcome to the Owens Dental local events newsletter, where we sift through the best of the upcoming month’s events roster, so you don’t have to!
For Art, Music, and Theatre Lovers
Denver Art Museum
Now through February 2nd, 2020
The Denver Art Museum is home to the most comprehensive U.S. exhibition of Monet paintings in more than two decades. Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature features more than 120 paintings spanning Monet’s entire career and focuses on the celebrated French Impressionist artist’s enduring relationship with nature and his response to the varied and distinct places in which he worked. This incredible exhibit is ONLY coming to Denver before it goes to Europe so this opportunity is certainly worth the trek!
