Think you’ve seen all we’ve got? Join us for a 45-minute, virtual tour into the secret depths of CSM’s painting storage vaults, just for members. Clyfford Still Museum Director, Dean Sobel, will take us behind the scenes to show us what storage is like, and what Patricia Still envisioned for the space. Sobel will pull out painting racks to share some paintings that have never been displayed at the Museum (and why!), collection curiosities, and some of his own personal favorites. Following his tour, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. If you would like to submit your questions in advance, please send them to education@clyffordstillmuseum.org.

Register in advance to join us online or over the phone at 12:30 p.m. MDT on June 10, 2020. Register for the Zoom meeting here. Live captioning will be provided.
