Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art is temporarily closed as we relocate to a new golden building in Denver’s Golden Triangle. Kirkland Museum’s Grand Opening is scheduled for March 10, 2018. The museum’s new building will offer visitors an enhanced experience with more display space while staying true to the salon style and intimate atmosphere for which the Kirkland is known. The museum’s three collections are: • International Decorative Art—A celebrated collection including notable examples of every major design period from Arts & Crafts to Postmodern. • Colorado & Regional Art—The largest repository of art showcasing the state and region’s talent, concentrating on the 1850s through the 1990s with about 7,000 works more than 700 artists. • Vance Kirkland Retrospective—Kirkland (1904–1981) is generally considered Colorado’s most distinguished modern painter. About 550 paintings and about 600 drawings and prints are held in his estate collection.

My sister and I visited the Kirkland a couple of weeks ago, and were very impressed. The art collection was beautiful, and organized in a very nice way. The staff were courteous, and helpful.

I love the Kirkland because it embraces the true intention of the Arts and Crafts philosophy: surround yourself with beauty....every object in your household can inspire. The downside to a visit there is that I want all of the pottery, especially. And Kirkland's art is...More

We have been to Denver many times and had missed this gem until now. If you love art and design, you have to visit. It was a visual extravaganza, and not to be missed. So many beautiful things!
