If you like art and haven’t been to the Clyfford Still Museum, or if you’ve been but want to get back for another look, now is the time!  Today marks the two-year anniversary of the opening of the museum, and in celebration the museum is offering free admission every day through November 24th. 

According to the museum, “The Clyfford Still Museum was founded to promote public and scholarly understanding of the late artist’s work through the presentation and preservation of the Clyfford Still and Patricia Still estates, donated to the City of Denver in 2004 and 2005. Considered one of the most important painters of the twentieth century, Still was among the first generation of Abstract Expressionist artists who developed a new, powerful approach to painting in the years following World War II. The museum, designed by Allied Works Architecture, reintroduces Still’s body of work to the public for the first time in over three decades and further establishes Denver as an international center for art and culture….The two-story, 28,500-square-foot building includes a series of light-filled galleries on its upper level, designed specifically to display Still’s work. This floor also features an education gallery, where visitors can further investigate ideas presented in the exhibition galleries and where intimate programs are held. Additional educational facilities as well as the library and archives, collection storage, a conservation laboratory, public areas, and administrative offices are located on the first floor.”
