Update: The move will no longer take place on Oct. 23.

“As you might imagine, the move of the studio building is extremely complex.” said Paula Tiernan, the press contact for the Kirkland during the move. “We are working closely with our partners at the city to find a new date that works for everyone.”

After months of preparation and a lot of digging, Vance Kirkland’s studio is nearly ready for its big roll down Capitol Hill.

The studio is the centerpiece of the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art, which has long sat on Pearl Street at 13th Avenue. The building will be relocated across the street from the Clyfford Still Museum on Bannock.

Tune in to Denverite this weekend to see our coverage of the spectacle that is a century-old building driving on 13th Avenue, and then Broadway, by way of six sets of remote-controlled wheels.

The move is expected to take 8 hours.
