Hosts Daisy Benitez and Gabrielle French
Loosely inspired by the exhibitions Francesca Woodman: Portrait of a Reputation and Hubbard / Birchler: Flora, we're holding a conversation about teen mental health, hosted by Daisy Benitez and Gabrielle French, two members of MCA Denver's teen leadership program Failure Lab.
Kitchen Table brings together artists, activists, and scholars for conversations over dinner using the current exhibitions as a starting point for discussion. Reservations are required, and seating is limited. Each pop-up dinner features a different host and a different theme. Tickets include admission to the museum, dinner, and conversation. Beer, wine, and cocktails are available for purchase. The dinner menu is presented by Four Directions Cusine. Vegetarian meals are available upon request. Due to the nature of the event, we are unable to accommodate other dietary restrictions.
Cost: $12 for members and students | $17 for non-members | free for teens
