a gem in Denver

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

This place is very much worth going to. I would recommend to visitors and residents alike. Best to leave the little kids at home though.

This was an unexpected and delightful find. This is not a large museum, but the works are laid out well and in a logical manner. The brief written commentary on the pieces is useful. Also, watch the short film at the beginning of the tour. The staff was great; even the security people seemed to know all about Clyfford Still’s... More

Clyfford Still is finally getting the recognition he deserves as a great 20th century artist. This stunning museum building houses a great retrospective of his work, and is just a short walk from the Denver Art Museum. Be sure to put this spot on your Denver walking tour.

One of the most interesting and influential abstract expressionist artists you've never heard of. 95% of all his works on display because he turned his back on the art establishment and wouldn't sell his works.

If you are interest in modern art then this is the place for you. Clifford Still museum displays all of the works of a single man. The museum itself i very aesthetically pleasing and modern. The works of Clifford Still are vibrant and alive. There are tours to be given by very friendly guides too. This isn't a place for... More
