The Kirkland Museum's move

The Denver Central Library, the Denver Art Museum, the Clyfford Still Museum, the Byers-Evans House Museum and the History Colorado Center all occupy a small area around the Civic Center, giving the state a cultural heart. And in a couple of years, the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art will join the club, with plans unveiled a couple of months ago that call for a new structure on the parking lot at the northwest corner of West 12th Avenue and Bannock Street. The new museum, which will be twice as large as the Kirkland's current Capitol Hill location, is being designed by Seattle-based Olson Kundig Architects, a firm known for its neo-modern aesthetic. The building is expected to be completed in 2017.
