Overview

Plan Your Visit

During your visit, learn about the legacy of an artist who invented a new way to paint and who continues to inspire artists today. Clyfford Still (1904–1980) had a unique artistic vision and was unwilling to compromise it for money or recognition. Still thought the best way to experience his art was by seeing it all in one place.

Designed specifically to display Clyfford Still’s work, the 28,500-square foot museum is home to approximately 3,125 pieces representing more than 93% of his lifetime of work. Before your visit, watch a brief video for an introduction to Clyfford Still, the Museum, and how this exceptional collection came to Denver. If you are visiting with children, watch the bilingual Art Protector animated video and learn how to keep the art safe for everyone to enjoy.
