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.

  • Certainly recommend this to others. It's a great museum dedicated to Still's art. It's a really nice and informative without being too overwhelming. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • What a pleasant surprise! It's fascinating to see a museum about this one artist, and to see his stylistic and philosophical evolution over his career. The museum is of course fairly small, larger than a standard Museum exhibition or a gallery, but small enough to go through in about 90 minutes. But seeing some of the additional work still in storage, I know there will be reasons to return. And the building isba great showcase for the art - interesting, but still a backdrop for the works.
  • Large and rare collection of Clyfford Still works and memorabilia. Contemporary and adventurous building design.
