What to do in downtown Denver if you don’t have a ticket for 0pening day of Baseball Season? Enjoy art, architecture, libraries, and food. There’s plenty available.
Newly- renovated Union Station houses a hotel, bookstore, restaurants and other shops. We admired the woodwork and lighting fixtures. And some orchids.
At the Denver Museum of Art, we made a lunch reservation at the fine restaurant Palettes. I think it should be renamed Scrumptious.

I didn’t know anything about Mr. Still, a contemporary of Jackson Pollack, Mark Rothko and Jasper Johns. Most of his work consists of large, abstract pieces. My favorite is the one of the boat.
We had to stop at the Denver Public Library, where childrens’ artwork was posted in the creating room. It was a comfortable place with interesting windows. For National Poetry Week, there was an activity to rearrange already-chosen words on sticky notes. Mine is below. Happy Spring!
