Locus point: a point whose location satisfies or is determined by one or more specified conditions.
In the Upper Idea Box, artist Andrew Huffman collaborated with students in MCA Denver’s leadership program Failure Lab to construct a geometrically-focused immersive art experience. The group worked to create an exhibition that represents them as both individuals and as a collective. For example, in the large mural, the six vertical and six horizontal stripes represent each of the twelve students in Failure Lab. Beyond an art installation, this room is a lounge. So come on in, hang out, and get inspired. Snap pictures and share with #mcalocuspoint.
Failure Lab is a museum-led leadership program for twelve Denver-area high school students. These students work with artists, museum staff, and their peers to organize exhibitions, plan events, and develop programming. Rather than focusing on achievement, Failure Lab is dedicated to developing creativity, becoming a place where the risk of failure is always a possibility.
