Mission Statement

Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art displays a retrospective of Colorado’s distinguished painter Vance Kirkland (1904-1981), a major survey of Colorado art and some regional art alongside extensive displays of international decorative art of every major design period from the Arts & Crafts to Postmodern.

Description

Kirkland Museum was founded by Hugh Grant, Director and Curator and opened to the public in 2003.

The museum houses three primary collections: an international decorative arts collection, a regional collection with a focus on Colorado art and a retrospective of the work of Vance Kirkland. Though a relatively young institution, the museum has quickly established itself as an important cultural asset to both Denver and the state of Colorado. Since opening, the museum’s hours, programming and collections have continued to evolve. Kirkland Museum is building a new facility and relocating to 12th Avenue and Bannock Street, near the Denver Art Museum and the Clyfford Still Museum, in Denver's Golden Triangle neighborhood. The new 38,500-square-foot museum, designed by Seattle-based Olson Kundig, is projected to open fall 2017. We are looking for individuals interested in volunteering for the new museum.
