The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (MCA Denver) explores the art and culture of our time through rotating exhibitions and public educational programs. Featuring regional, national and international artists, MCA Denver offers a wide range of exhibitions promoting creative experimentation with art and ideas. Through adult and youth education programs and other creative events, the museum serves as an innovative forum for a culturally engaged community.
MCA Denver was founded in 1996, when philanthropist Sue Cannon and a group of volunteers created the first dedicated home for contemporary art in the city of Denver. In October of 2007, the museum opened a new 27,000 square foot, Gold LEED certified museum designed by British architect David Adjaye. The building, Adjaye’s first museum commission, was designed to minimize boundaries between the exterior spaces of the city and the interior galleries of the museum. Hidden skylights fill the interior spaces with natural light. Windows look out on the streets of the central Platte Valley. The building has five galleries on two floors as well as dedicated education spaces, a shop, library, and rooftop café.
Located on the corner of 15th and Delgany Streets, just two blocks from Union Station, MCA Denver offers the MCA Café with Rooftop Deck for private rentals.

This was the perfect venue to hold our reception. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My guests had a wonderful time. The views of the city are just stunning and the design of the building made a perfect setting.Sent on 10/06/2014
