Hosted by the Rocky Mountain Chapter
The ICAA Rocky Mountain Chapter is excited to invite you to an exclusive collection tour of Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art. Our tour guide will be Gerald Horner, former Deputy Director to the founders Hugh A. Grant and Merle C. Chambers. Gerald’s extensive knowledge of the collection will give us a fresh insight of this very important collection right here in Denver, Colorado.
Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art in Denver, Colorado, allows visitors to time travel through about 150 years of art. The collections contain over 30,000 works by more than 1,500 artists and designers, with about 4,400 works on view. The three principal collections are all shown in salon style:
Founder and curator Hugh Grant opened Kirkland Museum to the public in 2003, displaying the works of Kirkland, his Colorado and regional colleagues, and international decorative art. Merle Chambers and Hugh Grant were married from 1989–2017. Chambers was influential in the growth of Kirkland Museum and the Merle Chambers Fund provided the funding for the new museum building.
The new building at 1201 Bannock was designed by Jim Olson of Seattle-based firm Olson Kundig.
