With nearly 4,000 works scattered throughout three impressive collections, Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art exhibits the innovation and expansion of art and design movements throughout the 20th century.
The historic building, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, houses works from every major design period in the past century, a wide collection of Colorado artists and designers, and a special collection of painter Vance Kirkland's work. Art buffs may browse an array of intricate designs from the turn of the century Arts and Crafts movement, through the Art Deco pieces of Frank Lloyd Wright and contemporaries, and all the way up to pop art and its carbonated-soda style of relevant splatter.
Membership includes access to museum art Tuesday–Sunday, additional vouchers for free admission, mailings and monthly Treasure Hunt e-newsletters, free or discounted admission to museum programs, and a minimum of 10% off at the museum gift shop. Because of the delicate nature of the designs, children younger than 13 and adults with autonomous butter fingers are not admitted into the museum.
