The Contemporary Circles at MCA Denver gathers together friends of the Museum who enjoy the company and conversation of other art enthusiasts. These Circles give members a chance to discuss contemporary art in our time, provide exclusive access to artists' studios, private art collections, and invitations to conversations with curators and special guests, fun get-togethers and social events, national and international curator-led tours and so much more. What's extra special about this opportunity is that 70% of your membership dues goes directly to supporting MCA Denver's mission in real ways.
