The Power of Place: Chappell House

By Guest Blogger Suzanne Shapiro

In 1936, where was DU’s School of Art located? In Chappell House. In 1936, where was the Denver Art Museum located? In Chappell House. The DU students were exposed to the diverse exhibits in the DAM galleries. For me, personally, it was a bonanza in that I was able to work for pay in both places, between my classes. I did clerical work for the school and at times, the museum employed me as a receptionist.

Since we in the student body at Chappell House were isolated from the main DU campus on Evans, we felt like a family. We drew art together, we grew in maturity together, we lunched together, we joked together, and we made many warm memories together.
