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.

Loved visiting this stunning museum which was open late on the last Friday evening of the month. Handsome brutalist architecture is the setting for this museum showing the work of this one great artist. A must for visitors to Denver.

I have always liked the Abstract Expressionists, so I was surprised that I didn't know Clyfford Still. This museum was a great introduction to one of the more interesting and significant abstract expressionists. I was very happy that I took the opportunity to visit. I heartedly recommend it to other art lovers.

Nice museum near the Art Museum. Learn about an impressionist artist not as well known as the heavy hitters . The works on paper was the show I saw and was not "wow". Was interest in his life and women working at the desk were very helpful and knowledgeable

I stumbled across this museum in my search for the Denver art museum. I happen to like abstract expressionist artists and Clyfford Still was one of the main artists.

This is a thoughtfully presented collection of Clyfford Still's works and goes into great detail about his life and chronology through videos, text placards and tours. I found this exhibition to be very well done and well worth visiting.

This museum is all about Clyfford Still. He was an under appreciated 20th century abstract expressionist artist because he chose to marginalize his art and not participate in the art scene. Upon his death in 1980 he willed his collection to an American city that would create a museum to display it. Fortunately the city of Denver stepped up and... More

What a wonderful opportunity to see the compiled works of a single influential artist. We went on a free museum evening and only stayed about an hour prior to another event, but I happily would come back again to pay the entrance fee and spend more time absorbing the impact of Still's paintings. Really wonderful.

I was not familiar with Clyfford Still before visiting the museum, but certainly considered myself an enthusiast for abstract. The museum has done a tremendous job at showing the life and work of Clyfford Still, and creating such a legacy. It was great to see all of his art collectively (in the way that he wanted). The museum building itself... More

I only got around coming to this museum when they had free entrance for the Night at the Museums events. The building and paintings are worth a look. However, I am not much into abstract expressionism so if I was limited in time or money I wouldn't make coming here a priority when visiting Denver.
