Jeremy Hillhouse

Jeremy Hillhouse
1940 – 2009

Born in Colorado Springs, Jeremy earned his Bachelors degree in fine arts from Colorado College going on to graduate school at UC Davis. Returning to Colorado in 1970, Jeremy was hired by the Denver Art Museum as an exhibition designer. He became the design director and the department he wove from whole cloth became recognized as one of the most significant in the West. He retired from the museum in 2000. As a painter Jeremy was an abstract expressionist using the Colorado landscape, specifically the Eastern plains as subject. As he once explained, his landscapes are not about how the scene looks, but, instead, reflect his thoughts about it. Jeremy’s works can be found in the permanent collections of the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center and the Denver Art Museum.
