Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, 1201 Bannock St., is in an expanded 1911 Arts and Crafts-style building that once housed painter Vance Kirkland's studio and art school. 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 Kirkland are featured, and range from traditional/realist to abstract. The new building will increase the viewable collection by at least 5,500 works.
Note: The museum is closed for renovations; it is scheduled to reopen Mar. 10, 2018 in a new building that is attached to the 1911 building. Phone ahead for updates.
