Black Tie International:
The Denver Art Museum's 35th Annual Collector's Choice Fundraising Gala

Denver Art Museum Honors Longtime Supporter Jan Mayer
at Collectors’ Choice 35

The museum’s elegant black-tie fundraiser includes cocktail hour,
seated dinner and entertainment


The Denver Art Museum (DAM) will celebrate Jan Mayer for her longstanding dedication and generous contributions to the Denver Art Museum at its 35th annual Collectors’ Choice fundraising gala on December 10, 2015. This year’s funds will support acquisitions and programming in the museum’s New World department.


“We are forever grateful for Jan's unwavering support and are delighted to celebrate and honor our dear friend at the 35th annual Collectors’ Choice,” said Christoph Heinrich, Frederick and Jan Mayer Director at the DAM. “Her contributions have played an integral role in making the DAM a world-class institution.”


For more than four decades, Mayer has been a steadfast friend and patron of the museum. The incomparable gifts of Spanish Colonial art by Mayer and her late husband, Frederick, elevated the DAM’s collection to the best in the United States and one of the finest in the world. Additionally, the gift to endow the New World department in 2003 funded curatorial positions in Pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial art, as well as founded the Frederick and Jan Mayer Center for Pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial Art. The Mayer Center is committed to increasing awareness and promoting scholarship in Pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial Art by sponsoring scholarly activities including annual symposia, fellowships, study trips and publications. Furthermore, the Mayers provided a fund to endow the position of the museum’s director in perpetuity.


Always supportive of the museum’s larger mission, Mayer has generously given a considerable amount of her time and resources. She has wholeheartedly supported the new photography department, funded the expansion of the museum’s collections database and made a major gift toward the construction of the recently completed museum administrative building. Mayer also continues to generously support a variety of departments through Alianza de las Artes Americanas, DAM Westerners and Friends of Painting and Sculpture.


The Collectors’ Choice 35 event chairs are Lanny and Sharon Martin and the honorary chair is Governor John Hickenlooper. Gala tables start at $10,000 and pairs of seats start at $2,500. Only a few tables remain; interested parties should contact Gravely Wilson at  or 720-913-0034.


The Denver Art Museum is an educational, non-profit resource that sparks creative thinking and expression through transformative experiences with art. Its holdings reflect the city and region—and provide invaluable ways for the community to learn about cultures from around the world. Metro citizens support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), a unique funding source serving hundreds of metro Denver arts, culture and scientific organizations. For museum information, call 720-865-5000 or visit
