Free art exhibit showcases Van Gogh, Picasso

An exclusive showing of Impressionist and Modern paintings, American art, 19th Century European art and luxury timepieces will be on display April 22-24 at the JW Marriott Denver.

The artworks, including paintings by Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Norman Rockwell, will be showcased in the hotel's new Fireside event space before Christie's puts them on the auction block this spring.

"Christie's is thrilled to have the opportunity to share with those in Denver these star lots from our upcoming spring sale season," says Liz Sterling of Christie's in New York. “We are particularly excited to display Thomas Moran’s large-scale masterwork, The Grand Canyon of the Colorado."

The exhibit is coming to Denver as a result of the strategic partnership JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts formed with Christie's. The venture began in 2011 as part of a global brand initiative to deliver a deeper luxury guest experience at JW Marriott properties worldwide. The public exhibitions and previews of major auctions and JW Marriott hotels offers travelers a glimpse into the worlds of art and auction.

“We have long been dedicated to supporting the arts in Colorado and are proud to serve as the official host hotel of the Cherry Creek Arts Festival," says Dave Pease, General Manager of the hotel. "This will truly be a unique event for Denver’s art scene."

The event, at 150 Clayton Lane in Cherry Creek, is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 22-24.
