The Clyfford Still Museum

Clyfford Still Museum 2

I was complaining about the boring architecture in Denver's central business district. A short distance away is an area that contains The Denver Art Museum, the main public library and the Clyfford Still Museum. There the architecture is wild with utterly different buildings piled up on one another, sometimes creating a chaotic effect.

The most unusual institution is the museum devoted exclusively to the art of the American abstract expressionist master, Clyfford Still. Why just the one painter and why in Denver? If you are interested, find out here.

I've been to the Denver Art Museum but not this one. Looks like I missed a good one. I love those paintings.

The shadow and light patterns in that first shot really stand out!

I really like the first photo and I wouldn't mind visiting this museum either.

Love all the lines and shadows in your first shot.

All shots are good but the light and shadow play on top is my favourite.

You know how I love art Bob, had to click the link.. I am a fan of abstract art, I like his work very much, not too over the top. Your first image is a brilliant mix of light and shadows, nice work!

Great composition on the first two photos. Lots of details, lines and shadows.
