Tour 8: Highlights of the Clyfford Still Museum
Tour leader: Staff of the Clyfford Still Museum
Described by many as the most anti-traditional of the abstract expressionists, Clyfford Still is credited with laying the groundwork for the movement. The Clyfford Still Museum now houses 95 percent of the artist’s total output, making its collection the most intact body of work of any major artist. It contains approximately 825 paintings and over 2,300 works on paper.
In addition to the artworks, the museum is also home to the artist’s archives of letters, sketchbooks, manuscripts, photo albums, and personal effects. The museum’s rotating exhibitions, drawn almost exclusively from its extensive collections, illuminate both Still and the important period of American art history surrounding his lifetime. The exhibition during the AHA meeting is the largest mounted by the museum to date, and will highlight 260 paper works. Participants will tour the museum with a docent, with the option to enjoy the museum on their own after the tour.
Please note: The museum is ADA compliant; participants will walk approximately 15 minutes to and from the museum. Alternate transportation for people with disabilities is available on request.
