He’s kind of making up for lost time, since it wasn’t until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he began to appreciate the importance of the arts. He used his time at DAM to cultivate his love of the arts and art history by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find.
