Current Exhibitions

While the Vicki Myhren Gallery and Davis Gallery are closed for the summer, be sure to visit the DU’s Madden Museum of Art in Greenwood Village. On view through July 26, 2024 is “Fleeting Presence: The Liminal Art of Daniel Sprick.”

Organized by a cohort of sixteen students from the School of Art & Art History at the University of Denver, this exhibition explores formal and thematic tensions in the work of Colorado artist Daniel Sprick. Through his adept handling of form, space, color, and light, Sprick creates hauntingly beautiful paintings rooted in the realism of Dutch artists like Johannes Vermeer. His paintings reflect our world back to us, but it’s a world imbued with hints of melancholy and hidden meaning. Embracing ambiguity, Sprick’s art brings together seeming opposites – life and death, stillness and dynamism, transience and permanence ­– transforming our everyday existence into something magical and mysterious. 

The Madden Museum of Art is free and open to the public from 9-5, Monday through Friday.
