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,
in celebration of this new sponsorship, the Clyfford Still Museum is generously offering one reader of A Denver Home Companion a membership to the museum! if you’d like to enter for a chance to win, simply leave a comment below.

yesterday, after ramona’s nap, the three of us got all dolled up and headed to a special free day at the clyfford still museum. ramona loved the tall ceilings and big rooms and we followed her closely to make sure she didn’t get too close to the beautiful canvases. she was none too thrilled when we whisked her away for some pints and half crisps at pints pub. until she tried a crisp. and then she was in heaven — a girl after her father’s anglophile heart. then we dropped ramona off at our friends’ house so jp and i could have a date night at noble swine supper club. jp and i were half of the original partners of this underground denver supper club but haven’t been involved in over two years. it was really fun to be at it again, but this time dining instead of cooking or serving. our friends do really amazing things, especially for the denver food scene!
