I renewed my membership; why am I still receiving notices?

Thank you for your renewal!

Due to processing time, some materials may cross paths in the mail. This should subside within 1 month. If it does not, please call the membership department at 720-913-0130.

Do Member Preview events ever sell out?

Yes, Member Previews do sell out at times. The Denver Art Museum takes timed-entry reservations for all of our Member Preview events. Advanced reservations are highly recommended to ensure your preferred entry time.

Please note: Member Preview events for ticketed special exhibitions require both advance reservation and purchase.

Why do members have to pay for ticketed special exhibitions?

Although ticketed special exhibitions have a surcharge, members always receive the best prices, guaranteed.

Contributing level memberships and above receive two free admissions for every ticketed special exhibition.

General museum admission remains free for members every day.

Why is there timed ticketing for special exhibitions?

Timed entry helps with overcrowding to ensure all members and guests enjoy their experience.

How can I stay informed about exhibitions, programming, and events?

A member-only email is sent to all members at least once a month. Content includes information about upcoming events, press announcements, and exhibition openings. It is the best way to remain up to date on timely Museum news. We do not share e-mail addresses and you may opt out of this service at any time.

Additionally, every membership includes a subscription to the DAM's magazine, On & Off the Wall, which is sent out every other month.

If you are not receiving member emails or magazines, please call us at 720-913-0130 to ensure we have the correct email and address.

How do I unsubscribe from e-communications?

We’re sorry to see you go, but if you no longer wish to receive e-communications, you may unsubscribe by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of our emails.

Are there any special organizations for young professionals at the Denver Art Museum?

Yes! CultureHaus is a social and educational gateway to the Denver Art Museum that connects the “young at heart” with art. CultureHaus celebrates the Denver Art Museum’s collections and programs by making them accessible to new art fans and longtime art lovers.
