MCA Denver invests in exhibitions and programs that challenge conventional thinking around what makes a museum a museum. This dialog between the museum and its audience is baked into the mission of the organization, making up the very DNA of programming and exhibitions. Like MCA Denver, teenagers are an audience whose development hinges on challenge and risk. Teens are trying on their own identities, discovering their place in the world, and pushing the boundaries of what they know and what they want to discover. We want to be a space that celebrates risk-taking, exploration, and a home of sorts for teens––a place to discover through interactions with art and artists, and a place to connect with other teens whom to share experiences with and discover the art of their time. Also, if you didn’t already know MCA Denver is FREE for teens, ALWAYS!

Get Close But Don’t Touch was created by Denver artist Moe Gram and eleven metro Denver high school students who participated in a three-week workshop via Zoom calls, thrift store visits and small group installation at MCA Denver, to ensure safe social distancing. Teen participants were given wood panels, collage materials, and $25 gift cards to collect objects from thrift and craft stores to contribute to this piece.
It's a magazine, created by teens for teens (and everyone else). Teens in this 3-month paid internship make up the writers, designers and creative thinkers who string together art, music, stories and other shenanigans into a monthly publication.
