    New Addition Oppresive and Hideous
    smb2007 (52 reviews)
    10/03/2007

    Recently, Colorado approved a multi-million dollar addition to the Denver Art Museum. The new building, designed by Daniel Liebeskind, is an oppressive building that does nothing but evoke an overwhelming sense of anxiety and impending doom. The building looks as if it has been frozen at a moment just after a missile impact, it's facade being broken and thrown into the air. The facade however, is just a preview of what is to come. The inside is a nauseating mess of canted walls, wholly unsuitable for displaying art. The museum must of known this, because they chose to put their collection of modern "art" in this section, which makes it all that much easier for patrons to skip. As a frequent visitor to the "old" section of the Art Museum, I found it quite appropriate that the museum employees have adopted a sense of aloofness that seems to come from their new, "cutting edge" architecture. Overall, the Denver Art Museum is a boring, ill-conceived attempt at presenting the state as a population of "better than thou" art snobs.
