DENVER (CBS4)– The finishing touches are being put into place for the Passport to Paris exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. The new exhibit is actually three and opens Oct. 27.

The exhibits include three centuries of French art that explore how art and society changed over those years.

“So really a total package of not just painting but the art of living, the art of design through time,” said exhibition educator Molly Medakovich.

Displays of French fashion are being set into place to compliment the works by Renoir, Pissaro, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and Degas.

Also on hand are 11 works by Claude Monet. It’s a rare chance to see multiple works by the master at the same time.

“That’s what is super exciting about the show is I think these first 300 years, from 1600s to 1700s, those centuries maybe aren’t as well known to the public and so it’s a real pleasure to be able to unveil that in a way that is engaging to people and so long ago and far away,” said Medakovich.
