Clyfford Still Museum hosts special evening concert during Denver Arts Week

Denver, CO – October 23, 2019 – The Clyfford Still Museum (CSM) will present a special Music in the Galleries event featuring the Altius Quartet from 6-8 p.m. on November 7 at the Museum, 1250 Bannock St., Denver, CO.  The event is presented in partnership with Friends of Chamber Music.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the Altius Quartet will perform at 6:30 p.m. in one of the Museum’s galleries.  Guests will also have the opportunity to experience the Museum’s new multisensory exhibition Still: Elemental and enjoy light refreshments during the event.

The award-winning Altius Quartet includes Joshua Ulrich and Andrew Giordano, violin; Andrew Krimm, viola; and its newest member Erin Patterson, cello.  Deriving their name from the Olympic motto Citius, Altius, Fortius (Latin for Faster, Higher, Stronger), the Altius Quartet strives to communicate the art of chamber music to diverse audiences through community engagement and an innovative repertoire.  The quartet performs at music festivals, universities, and concert series throughout the U.S. and has released two highly praised albums, “Dress Code” and “Shostakovich String Quartets Nos. 7,8 & 9.”

The special event at the Clyfford Still Museum will feature Janácek’s String Quartet No. 2, “Intimate Letters,” and Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major.

The cost is $30 and registration is required at www.clyffordstillmuseum.org.

About the Clyfford Still Museum

Designed by Allied Works Architecture to display the revolutionary art of a modern master, the Clyfford Still Museum opened in November 2011 in Denver’s burgeoning Golden Triangle Creative District.  Considered one of the most important and mysterious painters of the 20th century, Clyfford Still (1904-1980) was among the first generation of abstract expressionist artists who developed a new and powerful approach to painting in the years during and immediately after World War II.  The Museum’s collection represents 95 percent of the artist’s lifetime output.  As the steward of Still’s art and legacy, the Museum’s mission is to preserve, exhibit, study, and foster engagement with its unique collections; generate outstanding exhibitions, scholarly research, educational and other cross-disciplinary programs that broaden the definition of a “single-artist” museum; and be a gathering place for the exploration of innovation and individual artistic endeavor.  Connect with the Clyfford Still Museum on FacebookTwitterInstagram or at clyffordstillmuseum.org.
