  • A truly unique museum designed to exclusively feature the art of Clyfford Still in a manner that reflects the evolution of his art over time. The collection seems to rotate the art work on a quarterly (3 month) schedule so if you like it I recommend visiting a few times a year. Also I really enjoy going during the days on weekdays (M-F) because its relatively empty and your group can take their time, chat without bothering others and enjoy all the features of the building.
  • Very unusual venue devoted entirely to one artist. Clyfford Still was a major influence in Abstract Expressionism and we'll respected educator. Must see the giant canvasses to really appreciate the medium.
  • The architecture of the museum itself was a true highlight however the focus of a whole museum on just one artist was great, as it gave you a real appreciation of Clifford's development & style throughout his life.
  • I enjoyed looking at the paintings and learning more about Clyfford Still. My favorite part was the drawing room.
  • This museum is great, but may not be for everyone. Still's work is a little misplaced in Denver and a museum dedicated to one artist may turn some off. Beyond that, the museum is beautifully designed and presents the painter's work chronologically in a unique and accessible method. It's a real treat, and I left appreciating Still and his work much more.
