Art Meets Beast this weekend at MCA Denver
The Museum of Contemporary Art
MCA Denver, 1485 Delgany Street, is hosting its second Art Meets Beast festival, honoring the history of the bison. The two-day celebration begins tonight at 6:30 p.m. with a workshop led by Pete Marczyk of Marczyk Fine Foods, who will carve an entire bison; the vegetarian option is a film with food porn and archival food footage by filmmaker Kim Shively. Tickets are $5; call 303-298-7554 for more information.
Art Meets the Beast continues on Saturday with a free 4H farm-animal showcase presented by the Urban Farm at 10 a.m. That will be followed by a bus tour from noon to 3:30 p.m. ($55) that starts with lunch at the Kitchen Denver and includes stops at Happy Farms, the MM Local fruit and vegetable cannery, and Denver Beer Co.
The day ends with a 7 p.m. six-course feast at the MCA, where six local top chefs (Jamey Fader of Lola, Keegan Gerhard of D Bar, Troy Guard of TAG, Max MacKissock of Squeaky Bean, Jorel Pierce of Euclid Hall and Sean Yontz of El Diablo and Sketch) will serve dishes created with Marczyk's bison. Tickets are $85 in advance, $100 at the door; visit the website for more information.
