One Photograph at a Time: Dean Sobel
Mar 26, 2019
Join Clyfford Still Museum director Dean Sobel at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center for a program that challenges participants to look beyond their first impression and spend quality time with a single work of art.
As director of the Clyfford Still Museum, Dean Sobel spearheaded the efforts to create a permanent home for the Clyfford Still Estate, encompassing approximately 3,200 works of art by Still that were donated to the City of Denver in 2004. From 2000 to 2005, Sobel was Director of the Aspen Art Museum, a non-collecting kunsthalle. During his tenure, Sobel led the institution through its accreditation process and developed museum goals and programs for its 25th anniversary, including an ambitious presentation of site-specific installations presented around Aspen. Prior to this appointment, from 1995–2000, Sobel was Chief Curator at the Milwaukee Art Museum, where he held the joint position of Curator of Contemporary Art.
