Clyfford Still Museum, Denver

4.5
#9 of 24 in Museums in Denver
Clyfford Still is considered one of the most important and significant artists of the 20th century. He originated the Abstract Expressionism movement and influenced the work of contemporaries such as Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. Few artists of this magnitude have left behind such a comprehensive and mysterious collection of work. And never before has the world seen such a collection of work displayed intact, and under one roof. The Clyfford Still Museum provides visitors with an unprecedented opportunity to view and appreciate Still's extraordinary art and life. The size and significance of the collection, coupled with the extraordinary building design, makes this Museum unlike any other.

  • I had been to the DAM many times, but didn’t know how incredible this museum is! Definitely worth any admission fee. Staff is kind and knowledgeable.
  • Hadn't even known this was just awaiting visitors in Denver, as is often the case within a busy metropolis with more than enough to do. The building architecture is paired very well to accentuate Mr still's art. Also the depth of historical details of his life certainly warrants notice.
  • Enjoyed the family day program with grandkids ages 7 - 11. The guides stimulated discussion through hands on activities. We spent several hours in the Create Your Own room which had a wide variety of materials.
  • 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!
  • The building is absolutely beautiful and we'll designed! Loved every gallery and the set up of the paintings. Beautifully done. Will be returning often
