Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art is temporarily closed until our new building at 12th & Bannock is completed in fall 2017. Central to the project is the relocation of the building that housed Vance Kirkland’s studio and art school, built in 1910–1911. The 1,384 square foot building will be detached from the existing museum, moved eight blocks west and placed on the north side of the new building in the same orientation as it currently sits on Pearl Street. The new museum will retain the salon style display of international decorative art, Colorado and regional art and the estate collection of Colorado painter Vance Kirkland (1904–1981).
