The museum doesn't allow kids under 12 because of the many fragile items on display. They let us in because our two year old was sleeping in my husband's arms. I really anticipated visiting this museum and it was very kind of them to do this for us.
Vance Kirkland painted some very bright art which looked very cool. My favorite parts of art were all the teacups. Some are gorgeous and some I would actually purchase to use at home.
The downstairs holds many of his paintings in archive. I realize there isn't enough room because this is a small museum, but I wish they would pull out the art and display either in another museum or in a gallery. From what was visible, the paintings looked intriguing.
Vance Kirkland's paintings are unlike any other artist's and I instantaneously recognized his art in the Denver Art museum, the painting named Two Suns in the contemporary art section. Do visit this museum and enjoy!
