Clyfford Still Museum to close conservation-themed exhibition on April 28 and open brief Interlude show on April 30

Denver, CO – April 2, 2024 – The Clyfford Still Museum (CSM) will close the exhibition Spotlight: Inside Collections Care and Conservation on April 28 and open a week-long Interlude show on April 30.

On the closing day of Spotlight, CSM will offer free admission from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for SCFD Free Day. The Museum staff recommends reserving the SCFD Free Day tickets online in advance, but walk-ins are welcome. Tickets will be available online one week before the SCFD Free Day.

Additionally, CSM will host art-making activities and performances on its outdoor forecourt during the city-wide celebration of Día del Niño. Artist Leticia Dominguez will lead a drop-in activity where participants will decorate screen-printed paper puppets created by Dominguez from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Local groups will present child-friendly dance performances at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. The Día del Niño activities do not require pre-registration.

To prepare for the installation of a new exhibition, CSM will deinstall the conservation spotlights from Spotlight, change the look of several gallery walls, and bring out two paintings from the next show. During this week-long Interlude from April 30 to May 5, the Museum will display a full chronological presentation of highlights from its collection. CSM will then close for exhibition installation from May 6–9 and open Dialogue and Defiance: Clyfford Still and the Abstract Expressionists on May 10 to Museum members and May 11 to the public.

About the Clyfford Still Museum
Designed by Allied Works Architecture to display the art of one of the 20th century’s greatest artists, the Clyfford Still Museum opened in November 2011 in Denver’s 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 more than 93% 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 Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, or at clyffordstillmuseum.org.
