clyfford still museum: trimmed but still a 'go'

from today's denver post article.

After a recession-induced delay of about nine months, groundbreaking for the $29 million Clyfford Still Museum has been set for Dec. 14.

Museum leaders decided not to move ahead with the building's construction until they had raised $25 million — a little more than 85 percent of the funded project's total design and construction budget.

The museum's design, by Portland, Ore., architect Brad Cloepfil, has undergone minor modifications since it was unveiled in March 2008 (it has dropped from 31,500 square feet to 30,000), but its low-lying, rectilinear look remains essentially unchanged.
