Kirkland Museum as a Lending Institution

Hugh Grant, Kirkland Museum’s Founding Director & Curator, began curating exhibitions for Vance Kirkland (1904–1981) in 1976. Since that time, he and the Museum have loaned to the institutions below.

Many of these organizations have borrowed several times from Kirkland Museum. This is one of three ways Kirkland Museum gains exposure of Colorado art and international decorative art, along with getting it published and exhibited—keeping Colorado and regional artists, in addition to decorative art, displayed at Kirkland Museum.
