Happy Halloween, Denver! Take advantage of free admission and extended Friday hours to take a peek inside this incredible museum. Not only is the Still home to virtually every piece of artwork created during Clyfford Still’s lifetime (don’t worry, it’s not all displayed at once!), it also takes visitors on a journey through his personal life with interactive displays and collections of mementos. If that’s not enough to get you through the door, then perhaps the sheer beauty of the building and its stunning concrete architecture will. This is a fascinating and inspiring place!
Who was Clyfford Still?
From the Museum: Clyfford Still was among the first generation of Abstract Expressionists who developed a new, powerful approach to painting in the years immediately following World War II. Still’s contemporaries included Philip Guston, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko. Though the styles and approaches of these artists varied considerably, Abstract Expressionism is marked by abstract forms, expressive brushwork, and monumental scale, all of which were used to convey universal themes about creation, life, struggle, and death (“the human condition”), themes that took on a considerable relevance during and after World War II.
