I found out about the Kirkland Museum move the other day and because of my internship at History Colorado, became curious about what the preservation community thought about it. It is my favorite art museum, and I can’t decide whether or not I like the idea of uprooting the building from its historic location. I asked the members of the Preserve Colorado Network group on Facebook and one of the responses came from a resident of Cap Hill who hated the idea. I agree with his argument that one of the main purposes of historic preservation is original context. It would seem to convolute the history of the building and Vance Kirkland’s life.
