Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art has one of the most important displays of 20th-century decorative arts in America, with an emphasis on the first three quarters of the 20th century. The studio of Colorado's distinguished painter, Vance Kirkland (1904-1981), where he painted and taught at the Kirkland School of Art, remains intact with his painting tables, brushes, dowels and remaining paints. Kirkland's historic Arts & Crafts style studio (1910-1911), is the oldest commercial art building in Denver and the second oldest in Colorado. A modernist Colorado collection of more than 150 artists is also on view.
