Wow! Mizzou at Monet is only days away! We know you’re busy with family during the holiday season, but we wanted to send you this information to make your journey to Monet’s idyllic world smoother.
Our adventure begins on January 4 at 1 p.m. sharp! The Rocky Mountain Tigers are fortunate to again partner with the College of Arts & Science for a beautiful adventure at the Denver Art Museum. A&S is flying in special guests to set the scene on Monet’s spirit and to update us on what is happening at Mizzou.
Please wear black and gold/your favorite Mizzou gear. Plan to spend one hour or more in the exhibit. The audio guide gives great insight to the exhibit and is included with your ticket (we got a special deal just for you)!
Registration, Mizzou Update and Enlightening Lecture: Please arrive at DAM by 12:50 p.m. for an exciting lecture on An Artist and a Street: Claude Monet’s Boulevard des Capucines, 1873 by Professor Michael Yonan, Professor of Art History. We’ll also hear from Dean Cooper Drury who will update us on A&S and Mizzou.
You’ll pick up all tickets and necessary information at the registration table in front on Sharp Auditorium. Your ticket includes an audio guide. Elevators to the auditorium are available.
If you’re unable to attend the lecture, registration and ticket pick-up will close at 2:30 p.m.

The most convenient place to park is in the parking garage at 12th Avenue and Broadway. Enter the garage from 12th Avenue just west of Broadway.
You may pre-purchase parking at www.culturalparking.com. You will be emailed a permit to show to the cashier on the way out that validates that you have paid for parking.
Designated accessible parking is available in the garage and at metered spaces along 13th and 14th Avenues.
Parking Lots & Meters
Several unattended parking lots and hundreds of metered parking spaces are located within walking distance of the museum. Most meters are only good for two hours and require the car be moved after that. Meters run until at least 10 p.m.
