5.0 out of 5 stars Museum Architecture taken to a whole new level. 4 Aug. 2014
By Sheryl G. Patten - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver. The art is phenomenal by a relatively unknown master of abstract expressionism. The building was made with his art in mind and it certainly was a perfect match. One of the most unique museums in the US and the most well designed building in Colorado.

5.0 out of 5 stars Painting meets Architecture, and They Kiss 15 Jun. 2013
By Douglas Groothuis - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had the distinct pleasure of visiting this museum today with an friend who is painter deeply affected by abstract expressionism, and particularly by Mr. Still. This is one of Denver's treasures, which I only know discovered, although it opened in 2005, having one a national competition to house the site. Denver is truly the winner on many levels.

Seldom does the built environment find its inspiration and structure in any graphic art. However, this museum was crafted to serve as an environment for Mr. Still's voluminous and enchanting works. Like Mark Rothko (see "Rothko's Rooms"), Mr. Still cared deeply not only about paintings, but about their placement in a larger whole. Other museums sometimes have the jarring effect of eclecticism--one sees painting after painting by diverse artists using diverse styles. Of course, museums often display exhibits by one artist (I have recently seen exhibits of Van Gogh, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Nick Cave), but the entire edifice is not envisioned and constructed to support the aesthetics of one artist. Further, these exhibitions travel around the world. They are not fixed, stable in space and place. The Still museum possesses 94% of his paintings, which are not going anywhere. Rather, his works are circulated for display throughout the year. Thus, the visitor who spaced out her visits will be able to behold a variety of works. This may be unique in the entire art world, and gives me reason to be thankful.

This small, but rich, book explains the thought and structure of the museum and features photographs Mr. Still's work and the concrete building itself. During my visit (and I will attend again soon!), I noted the simplicity and space the building affords the works it houses. It is not cluttered, but simple without being simplistic. The lighting (always of paramount important to exhibitions) is also a marvel. The ceiling is made up of a plethora of oval-shaped sky lights. This fits Denver's famous amount of sunshine: about three hundred days a year are sunny. Artificial lighting contributes its charms, but is in the background.

The first floor of the museum displays artifacts from Mr. Still's life, such as part of his book and record collection. One can also computer displays to get a sense of Mr. Still's time line in relation to other events in American history. This adds a light biographical touch, which contributes to the overall effect. Mr. Still was generally reticent about his works and life, but this material fills in some of the background It was his work, not his biography, that he wanted to present to the world.

If you cannot visit this exquisite museum, by all means read and behold this book. If you can visit the museum, by all means read and behold this book. Be sure to ponder it all in leisure. Then talk to others about it.

Awesome book. I needed it for a paper and inconveniently the university library's copy was checked out for the longest time so I went ahead and ordered it. However, I'm happy to add this one to my architecture book collection.
