The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (MCA Denver) explores the art and culture of our time through rotating exhibitions and public educational programs. Featuring regional, national and international artists, MCA Denver offers a wide range of exhibitions promoting creative experimentation with art and ideas. Through adult and youth education programs and other creative events, the museum serves as an innovative forum for a culturally engaged community.
MCA Denver is a non-collecting institution acting as an incubator for art and ideas, artistic exchange, and dialogue. In 2007, eleven years after its founding, the museum opened a new David Adjaye-designed building in Lower Downtown Denver. MCA Denver presents exhibitions featuring local, national and international artists, as well as offering ongoing public programs that explore the relationship between art and contemporary life. MCA Denver has a robust youth program, with a focus on teens.
The MCA has a fun Summer Camp With Adult Drinks program running through August with Bartender-in-Residence on Wednesday Nights
from 5–9PM where Denver’s top bartenders drop by to counsel campers on the art and craft of a tasty cocktail. Each beverage counselor will create signature drinks on the outdoor rooftop bar on Wednesday evenings from 5–9PM. During June the Beverage Counselor is from Steubens. In July, the Beverage Counselor is from The Kitchen, and in August, the Beverage Counselor is from Coohills.
Also, on Thursday nights, The MCA hosts “Mixed Taste”, Tag-team lectures on unrelated subjects, such as Sinkholes & Wormholes or Draft Beer & Draft Urbanism. The Mixed Taste series runs until August 29, 2013. Visit mcadenver.org for more information.
