Clyfford Still Museum (credit: CBS)
1250 Bannock St.
Clyfford Still passed away in 1980, leaving behind a will that required his works be bestowed upon an American city willing to dedicate a museum solely to his collection. In 2004, Still’s wife, Patricia, chose Denver as the lucky city to receive the extensive estate. In 2011 the two-story, 28,500-square-foot museum opened its doors to the public. The museum now houses approximately 825 paintings and 2300 works on paper, as well as notebooks, journals and other archives left to Patricia Still upon Clyfford’s death.
