KUSA - You can escape to Paris without leaving your own hometown.
The Denver Art Museum is giving you a "Passport to Paris" this winter with an art exhibit, and 9NEWS is giving you a look inside the magnificent display.
They have 300 years of French art in three different exhibits. Between the three exhibits, there's over 100 different works of French art. The Claude Monet exhibit has 11 of his paintings. Artists such as Alfred Sisley, Childe Hassam, Pissarro, Renoir & Van Gogh also have works displayed. Many paintings have never been on public display so these exhibits are a real treat for art enthusiasts
The Paris exhibit is more than paintings. There are costumes and decorative arts on display from the late 1600s.
The exhibits are also family friendly. People can enjoy a drawing studio to create a masterpiece of their own.
Visitors can also enjoy a French inspired menu in the museum cafe which included favorites like macaroons & champagnes from various regions.
The Passport to Paris exhibit is on display until early February.
