Art Collections

Denver Botanic Gardens collects art to inspire, educate and connect people with the natural world. Largely botanical in nature, the art collection contains a variety of media, including engravings, drawings and paintings. In addition, garden spaces are complemented year-round by sculpture from the permanent collection. Discover highlights below.
