The top-shelf fun continues at Clyfford Still Museum with the latest installment of its diSTILLed series, diSTILLed: Rebel. CSM has partnered with Denver Art Museum's own mixed-media late night program, Untitled #66 (Rebel, Rebel), for a special evening celebrating the artists of the modern art movement. Not since From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler has a night at the museum been this exciting (although you're still not allowed to play on the exhibits). Your ticket includes museum admission, light appetizers and an evening's worth of entertainment. A cash bar will be available. Learn More
The Museum collection contains works in graphite, charcoal, pastel, crayon, pen and ink, oil paint, gouache (an opaque watercolor medium), and tempera (pigments bound with egg yolks and water), as well as photographs, limited-edition etchings, woodcuts, and silkscreens.
The relationships between Still’s paintings and drawings are particularly significant in his later work. After moving to Maryland in 1961, Still created nearly 1,000 pastels, mostly on colored construction paper. In addition to certain compositional associations between later paintings and drawings, these pastels also illustrate how new treatments of line, color, and space that he first developed on paper informed subsequent pictorial inventions in his large-scale paintings.
The richness of the Clyfford Still Museum Archives is also apparent in this exhibition. Small annotated drawings of human skulls and bones found within an anatomy book undoubtedly played a role in Still’s 1931 large-scale, charcoal still-life drawing featuring a skull as well as other paintings and drawings of the 1930s. This exhibition also features various archival Still photographs of farm machinery and other agrarian themes, which became prominent subjects in his 1930s paintings.
