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.

  • The only reason I did not rank this excellent is the smaller footprint of the museum and the attitude of Clyfford Still in not sharing his art with the world. Keeping it all together is wrong! this....  more

  • Well well well… if it ain’t Mr. Clyfford Still! So many different varieties of painting styles and apparently, a great outdoor terrace with cool things that hang and shine. Color pallet was masterful. Canvas size, was extra large. 10/10 would recommend. Don’t overthink it.
  • I didn't expect to like this museum but everything about it is a gem. I don't "get" abstract expressionism but the curators have done an outstanding job tracing the evolution of this artist and making the art more accessible to the layperson. We spent 1.5 hours and really enjoyed every aspect. The entrance fee is affordable. We engaged in interesting conversation with the staff. I walked out understanding a lot more about an important period of art history.
