Kirkland Museum of Art

My go to art museum in Colorado is usually the Denver Art Museum. However recently, I decided to switch it up and visit the Kirkland Museum of Art. It was a fresh breath of air because instead of being more formal, the exhibits make you feel like you’re in someone’s home. It consists of his artwork as well as interesting objects and furniture he collected. My favorite part was his studio:

Vance Kirkland was 5’2 and had short arms, so in order to reach all areas of the painting, he hung from straps while working.
