The Clyfford Still Museum is sited next to the Denver Art Museum’s Hamilton Wing, designed by Daniel Libeskind.
The wood-slat screens are a nod to the process of board-forming the concrete that makes up the rest of the exterior.
The first floor of the museum is devoted to open storage, educational exhibits, conservation and research labs, offices, and the lobby. Some works on paper are stored in a research lab.
As visitors make their way up the main staircase, the low ceilings of the lobby give way to lofty skylit galleries on the second floor.
Three of the second-floor galleries are suitable for light-sensitive works; the remaining six are daylit.
