Photos: The MCA's Continental Drift brings Colorado art into focus

In this week's issue, art critic Michael Paglia reviews the MCA's current exhibit, Continental Drift, a group show featuring seven Colorado artists. Installed in several areas across the museum, the exhibit brings "the character of a set of shows as opposed to a singular endeavor, something that's reinforced by the fact that the work of the various artists is so disparate and disconnected," Paglia writes. "There are two solos (Jeanne Liotta and Christina Battle); a duet (Adam Milner and Yumi Janairo Roth); and a trio (Edie Winograde, Scott Johnson and Sarah McKenzie)."

Continue through to see pieces from each of the artists in the exhibit.
