A few weeks ago, the Museum of Contemporary Art had to close for a few days to mop up after a pipe break. Now it has to close for a few weeks to finish the repairs.
And so the MCA will be closed from now until Friday, October 7, when it will reopen in time for a big, already scheduled bash: A Mercurial Garden Party celebrating fall openings featuring Kim Dickey, Nathan Carter and Bodacioussss. The party will start at 6 p.m. with a members and VIP reception ($45); the opening celebration runs from 7 to 10 p.m, with $15 general admission tickets. (Get your tickets here.)
Although the museum will be closed until then, its website will be open for business at mcadenver.org.
