A Denver Home Companion | clyfford still museumA Denver Home Companion | clyfford still museum

yeehaw! i am delighted to introduce you to a new sponsor here at A Denver Home Companion: the Clyfford Still Museum! i’ve been there a handful of times but really fell in love with it when i finally got to take ramona with us on a family date. watching her toddle through the big rooms with the high ceilings, stopping to point out animals and, mostly, odd shapes that caught her eye. the Clyfford Still Museum is truly a magical place, for adults and young ones alike.

i’m hoping that if you live in the denver area you already know a little something about this place that has gotten much deserved press and applause. however, if you’re not in the know and/or are not from around here, here’s the gist:

The words legendary and unknown aren’t often used to describe the same artist. Clyfford Still is considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. He originated the abstract expressionism movement and influenced the work of contemporaries such as Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. Yet, most people have never heard of him. At the height of his career, Still severed ties with the art world, and continued to paint. At the time of his death, Still’s personal collection of work contained over 2500 pieces of art or 95% of everything he ever made. That collection is now available to the public to view at the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver. Visit the Clyfford Still Museum, and experience a life in paintings.

the building is quite stunning inside and out, and it has a nice green lawn right outside the front door — not to mention its proximity to the denver art museum, the central library, and the cherry creek trail,

    What a fabulous sponsor!
    Was thrilled to see a Still cameo on Project Runway last week. ;-) My heart fluttered.

  4. Lorissa says:

    I would love to take the girls there, too! Thanks for sharing about the free day as well, we’ve been wanting to go and that will certainly be a good time to check it out! Congrats on the new sponsorship!

  5. I somehow stumbled on your blog the other day. I have been meaning to visit the museum for some time and I’m so happy it’s good for kids. I’m sharing this giveaway on my blog as well (and then I’ll share that on facebook). Very exciting giveaway!

  6. Katie says:

    This is very exciting! My soon-to-be six year old is currently really digging the art museums. It’s so amazing to visit with them, listen to their opinions, see the creative world through their eyes and delight with them.

  7. Lynn says:

    Ohh, what a great giveaway, just re-tweeted it! And thanks for the heads up on the next Free day, got it on the calendar.

  8. Nicole says:

    We’ve been wanting to visit the museum for awhile now, and have been forward to the upcoming free day. We’d love to win a membership! I’ve shared this on Facebook and Pinterest as well. Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

    I got to go to the opening ceremony for being involved in the branding a bit, but I never have seen the museum. Definitely on my list!!

  10. I haven’t been to the museum since the opening shindig… I’d love to leisurely stroll through! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  11. What a great giveaway! I hope I win!

    What an amazing sponsor for you and a great giveaway for one of us Denver folks. Found your sweet blog a few months ago…great time to comment and say “hi”. My young ( 3 and almost 6) boys and I have yet to visit the museum, but sounds like one we will have to check out soon…. Maybe with a membership :). Thanks!

    What a great sponsor! I love the Still and lose myself in there for hours. Would love a membership.

  14. Mink says:

    A free membership to the Clyfford Still Museum? Um, yes please!

  15. Alexis A says:

    I have not been to the museum yet but it’s very high on my list. I know it’s a treasure for Denver to have! Great giveaway.

  16. Not only is this an amazing museum (one that I’ve blogged about and visited 4 times since moving here), but my boys made Clyfford Still abstract watercolors last week. Yes, they’re an impressive lot. I know we’d all LOVE the membership. As an interesting side note, I went to the Clyfford Still retrospective at The Met in 1979– but I was only 3 years old, so I don’t remember it that well :)

  17. This is SO cool! I would love to win a membership! I’ve never been, but it looks amazing, and I will definitely have to go soon – with or without the membership;)

  18. I retweeted your link on Twitter:)

  19. Elaine Ellis says:

    I’d love a chance to both visit the Clyfford Still Museum and to get to Denver more often!
