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!
