This is a great addition to Denver's cultural/artistic life. The gift of a poster for Groupon coupon users was a special treat. We're very appreciative, and recommend the Still Museum to friends and visitors.

Staff monitoring the galleries should not be talking to each other loud enough for patrons to hear.

I had 3 friends at random tell me about the museum. When the Groupon came along it prompted me to go check it out. I went with 3 19 year old boys, they loved it. They also found the building itself to have quite interesting architecture. I'd definitely recommend it to others.

The more you look at Still's work the more you want to look at it. I felt engulfed by the large canvases. And the museum's architecture and ambiance plays well against the art in its modernity and variation in texture.

From Our Editors

In 1979, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted a mammoth Clyfford Still survey. Little did museum-goers realize that it would be their last opportunity to see Still's work for more than 30 years. When he died in 1980, Still stipulated that his work be kept from the public eye until an American city created a museum dedicated solely to his art. His wife, Patricia, selected Denver in 2005; by November 2011, the two-story, 28,500-square-foot museum finally opened its doors.

Inside, nine galleries showcase rotating pieces from nearly 94% of Still's entire output, which includes approximately 825 paintings and 1,575 works on paper. Taken together, these pieces trace Still's evolution from representational painting to abstract expressionism, a shift he made earlier than contemporaries such as Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. Besides Still's artwork, the museum houses the artist's personal belongings, ranging from sketchbooks to recordings of the many prank calls he pulled on Pablo Picasso. In addition to preserving Still's legacy, the museum plays host to events such as liquor tastings, artist lectures, and film screenings.
