MCA Denver is presenting three artist residencies this fall in collaboration with the Guadalajara art laboratory PAOS. Three artists, Francisco Ugarte, Christian Franco and Cynthia Gutierrez, will be in residence in Denver for two weeks each, presenting public programming, working with local artists, and collaborating with the teens in MCA Denver led leadership programs. This project is made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
