The architecture is just so smart, don’t you think? It really tackles how to showcase the work of a single artist. Did you know that Clyfford Still kept almost every painting and drawing he ever made? According to the L.A. Times:
“The museum estimates that its collection, a 2004 and 2005 gift to the city and county of Denver on behalf of the artist by his widow, accounts for nearly 94% of his output.”
The Clyfford Still Museum shares a close-knit space with the Denver Art Museum, and I love thinking about the dialogue that their very different approaches to architecture and exhibition will add to the city’s cultural interpretation of fine art!
