Sensory-Friendly Morning at the Denver Art Museum

May 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The museum’s Sensory-Friendly Mornings is a program for kids with neurodiversity or sensory processing disorders and their families to visit the museum in a safe and fun way. The museum will open early, dim the lights, and provide tools to aid and guide a sensory-friendly experience for the whole family.
This event is free with registration: https://tickets.denverartmuseum.org/DateSelection.aspx…
Our featured “Meet and Make” artist for this Sensory-Friendly Morning is Tya Anthony. Tya is an artist from Baltimore, Maryland, who lives and works in Denver, Colorado. Tya is an interdisciplinary artist, whose work spans from photography to mixed media. Tya’s work explores themes of identity seeped in ritual, healing, and storytelling. Her work observes and reimagines inclusive spaces for people of color through photography, collage, and reliquary (a container for holy relics). Our friends from McNicholas Miniature Therapy Horses will also be back to provide equine therapy (as well as general cuteness).
Please note: Sensory-Friendly Morning begins at 9am in the Hamilton Building. The museum opens at 10am for general admission. Light and audio will return to regular levels at 12pm.
