Clyfford Still, one of the world’s most influential abstract expressionist painters never spent any material amount of time in Denver, yet we have his museum.

The Clyfford Still Museum opened in November of 2011. Considered one of the most important—yet mystifying—painters of the 20th century, Clyfford Still (1904–80) was among the first generation of abstract expressionist artists who developed a new, forceful approach to painting in the years during and immediately after World War II.

In addition to approximately 9,000 square feet of exhibition space devoted solely to the artist’s output, the Museum also houses the Clyfford Still Archives and the Clyfford Still Museum Research Center.

The Los Angeles Times calls the Museum “a marvelous model for what a single-artist museum can be.” Smithsonian Magazine describes the Museum as “among the best art museum experiences anywhere.” The Museum was designed by Allied Works Architecture, which received the 2013 Design Award, 2012 Honor Award, and 2012 Craftsmanship Award from regional chapters of the American Institute of Architects for the project.

This talk will address a history of the museum, including the terms of Clyfford Still's will, the selection of Denver for the Museum, and the establishment of an endowment, the Museum's mission, goals, and function in the Denver community.

John Eding has worked in publicity departments of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Milwaukee Art Museum, and Art Institute of Chicago. An alumnus of the University of Michigan, he has a Master of Arts degree in international museum studies from Gothenburg University in Sweden. He moved to Denver and joined the Clyfford Still Museum in 2014.
