AAA Editor Notes
Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, 1311 Pearl St., is housed in an expanded 1911 Arts and Crafts-style building with two windows by Frank Lloyd Wright. An extensive decorative arts collection of more than 3,500 works, including examples from the Arts & Crafts movement through the Post-Modern period is on display. Works by Colorado painters, ceramists, sculptors and furniture designers as well as works by painter Vance Kirkland are featured, and range from traditional/realist to abstract.
Note: The museum will close after May 1, 2016, as it prepares to move to a new location near the Denver Art Museum. It is scheduled to reopen sometime in 2017. Phone ahead for updates.
Guided tours are available.
