Back by popular demand! Earlier this summer, Clyfford Still Museum Director Dean Sobel took CSM members on an exclusive, virtual tour of one of CSM’s south painting vaults. In August, join us for a free, 45-minute, virtual tour into the secret depths of CSM’s north painting storage vaults. 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

Register in advance to join us online or over the phone at 12:30 p.m. MDT on August 17, 2020. Register for the Zoom meeting here. Live captioning will be provided. If you do not have access to Zoom, please join us for a livestream of the tour on the Museum’s YouTube channel.
