The canvas was his ally. The paint and the trowel were his weapons. And the Art World was his enemy. Discover an American Master at the Clyfford Still Museum, home to the world's most intact public collection of a major American artist. 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. With very few exceptions, paintings will not be on view in the Museum during this time.

The architecture of the building was gorgeous and creative with natural lighting. The displays were beautifully done. The displays showed a history and transition of his style over the years. The inactive art area was fun for the adults and children in our group. The touch screen on the first levels showing the history in relationshoip to the artist years... More

This is a museum devoted to only one artist. I am not usually a big fan of Abstract Expressionism, but I enjoyed the exhibit of the artist's works on paper. It documented his development as an artist. Some of the pieces were quite beautiful. The architecture of the building, done in cast concrete, is quite interesting, too.

Stopped at the Clyfford Still Museum on a recent trip to Denver as we have been to the Denver Art Museum next door a number of times. Happened to be free the day we stopped by (as it is most Friday evenings) which was a bonus. Had seen a few of his pieces before in other museums but this museum... More

A great addition to a day at the Denver Art Museum, or an evening with a loved one, we really enjoy the Clyford Still Museum. The architecture alone is worth visiting for, as well as seeing how his peices are archived and rotated. We enjoy Color Field

It was a snowy morning with few people at the museum. Staff was helpful. The video about Clifford Still was informative and interesting as were the photos along one gallery wall. The architecture is unusual and adds to the art.

The museum is dedicated to only Clifford Still and has all his lives work. The museum is dedicated to preserving and promoting his work. I was impressed with the depth of his work and the soul of the artist is evident throughout this tasteful museum. I also had the free tour when I visited and the knowledge and passion that... More

You may not think a museum with a single expressionist painter is your "thing" but don't miss this museum designed for the artists' work. It is interesting, profound, and deeply engaging. It's a must do whenever I have guests. Plus, they have wonderful Friday nights for couples including outdoor music in the summer. It's worth the approximately $15 admission and... More

I’ve never been much for abstract expressionism. A lot of abstract art leaves me cold, but there was something about the art of Clyfford Still that intrigued me and made me want to see his museum. So, after spending the best part of a day at the DAM, and a very pleasant late lunch at Palettes (both reviewed separately) my... More

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.
