Denver art museum has revealed that it will start using the word ‘art’ to frame a painting.
A painting on the wall will now include a line of text, and the word will be added to the top of the frame.
The Denver Art Museum, located in the heart of downtown Denver, will begin using the term “art” to frame its paintings in November.
It is not yet clear how this will impact existing paintings, but the word “art”, which is a term used in the UK, is expected to be used more broadly in the coming years.
“It’s important for our visitors to be able to see what we’re doing,” said curator Mike Smith.
“We’re using words to tell them what we do.
Words are important, so we’re hoping they will have an understanding of what we are doing.”
The museum, which opened in 2012, is one of the largest art collections in the world.
According to its website, it is the oldest independent museum in the US, and is one the oldest surviving public art museums in the country.
Its art is displayed in an area known as the Arts and Heritage District.
