Kirkland Museum

This is a kind of odd but wonderful museum, built around the work of Colorado artist Vance Kirkland and including his original (although relocated) studio, and many of his paintings, along with those of other Colorado artists.

The paintings adorn the walls of rooms full of mostly 20th century furniture, everything from Art Deco to mid-century to Pop Art, along with cases of ceramics and glassware. Everything is arranged in vignettes, with period lamps, phones and radios.

I loved the concept, but hated that they put the labels directly on the furniture. I confess to photoshopping the most irritating ones out.
