The canvas was his ally. The paint and the trowel were his weapons. And the Art World was his enemy. Discover an American Master at the Clyfford Still Museum, home to the world's most intact public collection of a major American artist. From October 14, 2016 to January 15, 2017, the Clyfford Still Museum will display more than 260 of Clyfford Still's works on paper in the Museum's largest exhibition to date. With very few exceptions, paintings will not be on view in the Museum during this time.

I only got around coming to this museum when they had free entrance for the Night at the Museums events. The building and paintings are worth a look. However, I am not much into abstract expressionism so if I was limited in time or money I wouldn't make coming here a priority when visiting Denver.

This museum is in close proximity to the major Denver Art Museum and it is worth the extra time for a visit. The artwork is unique and will make your visit worthwhile and satisfying.

Loved learning more about this under-appreciated abstract expressionist painter. His best works are on a monumental scale and can take your breath away. I didn't bother with rooms of papers and artifacts, so my visit stretched to an hour. Worth a detour from the Denver Museum of Art next door.

The museum houses 95% of Clyfford Still's artwork. They are well categorized and wonderfully displayed in chronicle order. They rotate his works periodically, so its worth it to visit again and again. The museum staff are very friendly and helpful in answering questions.

This is a beautifully designed and laid out museum on an artist few have heard of. His contemporaries are better known.

It is a well designed museum / kind of pricey for a museum featuring one person's work -- Discounts are often out there -- go at least once -- especially if you are from outside Denver

Just a tour of the interesting architecture is enough at this museum. The building exudes a peaceful, minimalist quality. The works hung throughout the museum are wonderful examples of Still's work and are hung in chronological order, allowing the visitor to really travel through his years of experience with him.

I was excited to see Clyfford Still's work in Denver with holdings of 95% of his estate. I used to live in Pullman, Washington where Mr. Still had spent his developing years and enjoyed hearing about his influence in the art world. As a painter myself, I was excited to my first time to see his work up close and... More
