Last night three architects presented their visions for the new Clyfford Still Museum in Denver. These three finalists brought very different experience and talents. Denver’s interest in architecture was evident in the approximately 550 people who attended. In this podcast, I give my impressions of the competitors and offer a guess as to which one will be selected.
UPDATE: Although Still did live in New York City from 1950 until 1961, I erred in calling him a "New York artist," because he was born in North Dakota and studied and taught in Washington state and worked in California before moving to New York. In 1961 he relocated to a farm near Westminster, Maryland, where he remained most of the rest of his life, largely cut off from the rest of the art world. (I gleaned this info from the Wikipedia entry on Still.)
