  • Biography

    Jerry De La Cruz (b 1948, Denver, CO) was the subject of a museum-wide retrospective at Denver's Museo de las Americas in 2015-2016. He is listed among the three dozen most influential regional artists of the twentieth century  in a Denver Post survey of regional curators and proved the best selling artist at the first International Latino Art Auction in Phoenix,  AZ. The Denver Art Museum's first purchase of a living Hispanic's work for its permanent collection was a De La Cruz. Years later, he was the only artist  considered when that same museum wanted to commission a major, contemporary digital work commemorating the opening of its new Libeskind Building.  De La Cruz was the recipient of back-to-back artist in residency grants from Colorado in his early career and received as well their very last painting  fellowship. Other honors include award of Best Art Event of the Year by Westword Magazine and appointment to Denver’s Commission on Arts  and Culture. De La Cruz currently splits his time between his summer studio in Denver, Colorado and his winter studio in Miami, Florida. Guests are welcome to visit either studio by appointment
