Clyfford Still is considered one of the most important and significant artists of the 20th century. He originated the Abstract Expressionism movement and influenced the work of contemporaries such as Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. Few artists of this magnitude have left behind such a comprehensive and mysterious collection of work. And never before has the world seen such a collection of work displayed intact, and under one roof. The Clyfford Still Museum provides visitors with an unprecedented opportunity to view and appreciate Still's extraordinary art and life. The size and significance of the collection, coupled with the extraordinary building design, makes this Museum unlike any other.Plan to visit Clyfford Still Museum during your Denver vacation using our convenient Denver trip planner.

I brought a group of 12 students here. If you're a school or big group, call them and they will have someone show you around! My school didn't do that, but my students still loved it and were all asking parents to go back during our spring break. I loved the art and wish I had more time to see everything. But the cost was super low, and it means I'll be coming back!
I had the pleasure of visiting the Clyfford Still Museum and I was thoroughly impressed. From the moment you walk in, you are transported into the world of abstract expressionist artist Clyfford Still. The museum's stunning architecture, combined with the careful curation of Still's works, creates an immersive and captivating experience. The collection on display is truly breathtaking, with an emphasis on showcasing Still's later works which are often considered some of his most powerful. Each piece is thoughtfully placed and accompanied by detailed explanations, providing visitors with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the artist's process and vision. I particularly appreciated the museum's commitment to preserving Still's legacy, as evidenced by the extensive conservation and restoration efforts that have gone into the collection. The museum's attention to detail and respect for the artist's work is truly impressive. Overall, I highly recommend a visit to the Clyfford Still Museum for anyone who appreciates modern art and wants to learn more about one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. It's a hidden gem in Denver that should not be missed!
