Owner description: 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.

“fascinating”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

I was impressed by the building, the art, and how it was presented. My only complaint was the staff did not know the answer to one of my questions about Still's technique. I will have to do research on my own.

“wonderful art and architecture”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

It is a small enought museum to tour easily.
Seeing much of the artist's work all at once was the best way to appreciate it

“Make this a stop on your trip to Denver”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Excellent museum and very much worth the trip. The works are outstanding and the staff are very helpful. This was a manageable and comprehensive museum. I usually get museum fatigue, but not the case here. I read every description, watched every video, and enjoyed every room. It truly is a deep look into Clyfford Still's work. The museum's educational materials helpfully position his oeuvre in cultural, American, and art history. A wide variety of Still's work and a great atmosphere. Highly recommend.

“Denver is so lucky!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Going to this museum was a highlight of our trip. Housed in a brand new building, the museum shows the growth of Clyfford Still from his early days to his large powerful abstract expressionist paintings.

Clyfford Still's masterpieces are not to be missed. Use the benches in every room to spend some actual time with these paintings. Just beautiful.

“Tantalizing, not overwhelming”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

For a museum with hundreds of paintings, I was prepared to spend hours and be exhausted. The curators have chosen to exhibit just several important major paintings at a time, many seminal works, and give viewers a reason to keep returning to this outstanding venue for the constantly changing offerings.
