Uncorked Returns to the Denver Art Museum on June 9th
The annual spring fundraising event celebrating art, wine and community, marks its 20th year
Uncorked, the Denver Art Museum’s annual spring fundraising event celebrating art, wine and community, marks its 20th year with a festive program in a spectacular new setting on Thursday, June 9, 2022. For the first time, the event will be held in the reimagined spaces of the Lanny & Sharon Martin Building, which was unveiled in late 2021. Attendees will enjoy strolling through the outdoor terraces during cocktail hour or lingering in the after-dinner lounge under the stars in their “picnic chic” attire. Fabulous music will be woven throughout the evening, from layers of live jazz performances in Kemper Courtyard to the indie-soul band Mama Magnolia during the dinner program. The hallmark of the event is a multicourse dinner with exquisite wine pairings. It will be set in the dazzling, glass-encircled Sturm Grand Pavilion as the sunsets.
Uncorked 2022 will raise funds for the museum’s Acquisitions Endowment. Through ticket and table sales as well as a silent auction, the event provides this support at an important time, as the DAM seeks to broaden its world-class collection. This is not your typical fundraising auction; Uncorked features truly extraordinary packages and experiences, from intimate after-hours access to the museum with thematic dinners to exclusive opportunities inspired by the event theme of art, wine, and community. Speaking of wine, one of the favorite elements of the silent auction is the array of covetable wines, from the highly collectible to the cult favorite. Special offerings from beloved Denver restaurants, boutiques, cultural institutions and sports teams round out the auction, which is accessible for public bidding starting June 1.
Uncorked is presented by Sharon & Lanny Martin, Amanda J. Precourt, UMB and Molly’s Spirits, and is proud to partner with Colorado Homes & Lifestyles, the event’s longtime Media Sponsor. It is supported by a devoted committee and Chair Amanda J. Precourt. Drawing trustees, patrons, community leaders and artists, the event is a warm and welcoming gathering that is sure to be an evening to remember.
