Clyfford Still is the most famous American artist that few people have ever heard of – until now.  The new (opened Nov. 2011) Clyfford Still Museum celebrates the works of this revolutionary abstract expressionist in a stunning museum devoted exclusively to his art.  Some 22 cities competed for the honor of owning this collection – come see why Denver won.
