Unique in its focus on Colorado artists

The Vance Kirkland studio is a marvel, and always on view in the back of the museum. Words cannot describe his brilliant paintings, suffice it to say that he has many imitators. You ought to see this space for yourself--speaking of which, Vance Kirkland of Colorado was a visionary, painting views of outer space from his vivid imagination, long before the Hubble telescope revealed that he was spot-on.?

This museum was such an amazing little surprise

I like it because it's a neighborhood museum.  You know like most people have a neighborhood bar or coffee shop, this is like that, but in the form of a museum.  I also like it because there are lots of chairs.  And lots of little things in the shape of animals.  It's funky and eclectic and while there is lots of stuff to look at, the size of the museum isn't overwhelming.  If you have a friend visiting who is really into design, I'd say it's makes for a fun alternative to some of Denver's larger museums.?
