Join Duke alumni for a special weekend in Denver and enjoy exclusive access to the Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature exhibition during a private night at the Denver Art Museum. Engage with Duke faculty positioned in the galleries and enjoy a panel discussion with Duke faculty on the subject of Society, the Self and Our Natural World.

The Denver Art Museum will be home to the most comprehensive US exhibition of Monet paintings in more than two decades, and is the sole venue for this US presentation. The exhibition will feature more than 120 paintings spanning Monet's entire career and will focus on the celebrated French impressionist artist's enduring relationship with nature and his response to the varied and distinct places in which he worked.

Monet traveled more extensively than any other impressionist artist in search of new motifs. His journeys to varied places including the rugged Normandy coast, the sunny Mediterranean, London, the Netherlands and Norway inspired artworks that will be featured in the presentation. The exhibition will uncover Monet's continuous dialogue with nature and its places through a thematic and chronological arrangement, from the first examples of artworks still indebted to the landscape tradition to the revolutionary compositions and series of his late years.

Traveling to Denver for the weekend? Join us for a Lunch & Learn session on Saturday afternoon at the ART, a hotel to set the stage for your enjoyment of the Monet exhibition. Sunday morning, breakfast at the ART, a hotel with Duke faculty table hosts and enjoy a last discussion following your immersion into the natural world presented through Monet's work.
