The Denver Art Museum's "Singing Sinks" piece is back after a five-year hiatus.

Details: The faucets — found in the bathrooms of the Sie Welcome Center on Level 2 of the freshly renovated Martin Building — belt out a harmonious chorus of "Row Row Row Your Boat" as you wash your hands.

  • Each sink is equipped with an interactive sound system that pipes in the music through the drain, offering a "voice in the plumbing" effect.
  • The installation was created by longtime Colorado artist Jim Green and debuted at the museum in 2002.

Of note: The DAM was recently cited as having one of the "Best Museum Bathrooms" in the country by the American Alliance of Museums, thanks in large part to its serenading sinks.
