If abstract is your thing, you'll love this. My kids think this is the best museum in Denver I'm not sure I like a couple others just as much if not more but it certainly is one of the finest. You can spend most of the day here if you don't watch yourself so plan accordingly.
This is the best museum in Denver. It's a small museum but the architecture is phenomenal! The entire museum is dedicated to one artist and the backstory for that is quite interesting. It's the largest collection of any single artists works and they're spectacular! I wont say too much because it's something you'll want to experience yourself. They also have an unrolling of a never seen piece coming up in November.
I had never visited the Clyfford Still Museum before, and I wasn't sure what to expect. I found it to be extraordinary. The artwork itself was incredible, of course, but the museum itself is also superb. From the architecture and design to the thoughtfulness underlying the exhibits and displays, I felt that I was on a journey that brought me into powerful and unexpected encounters. Thank you!
Still was a brilliant, innovative artist. This museum houses most of his best work, showing his development in a way no other museum can, since it has many works from throughout his lifetime. It has way more than it can show. I'm familiar with his work from the several major works at the Albright-Knox in Buffalo, equal to his best anywhere, but having nothing like the breadth and depth of this collection. This museum does a first rate job of showing how abstraction developed in his work, and the way his version differs from other major figures. The labelling and explanatory material gives one insight into his artistic philosophy. Worth a trip.
I got here 10 minutes before they were closing and had to kind of rush through it but I really enjoyed what I saw. I will have to go back for a more detailed peek. The art was super fascinating and it's interesting to me that one person could fill an entire museum! Can't wait to sit and really absorb it.
