James Kalm introduces us to a new side of Still

Here we get to watch "The guy on the bike" journey to Denver to see the unveiling of what I would consider a fantastic show of a ton of Clyfford Still paintings. Paintings I'm sure most artists living today never thought they would have the chance to see, as Still was very abrasive towards most people and didn't allow a lot of his paintings to be sold in his lifetime. When he passed away, his will stated that these works are only to be brought out of the storage when a museum has dedicated a "sub" museum for ONLY his paintings. So naturally I didn't think I'd live to see the day, but apparently it was in the works for a few years and is now coming to fruition.
