New York Times finds Museum of Contemporary Art/Denver mighty tasty

Adam Lerner, billed as "Director and Chief Animator, Department of Fabrications" on his business cards, and his creative crew at the Museum of Contemporary Art/Denver rate a rave in the New York Times this week. The March 1 piece titled "Puppies, Paintings and Philosophers" focuses on the Mixed Taste programs that Lerner introduced at the Lab at Belmar shortly after he joined that new venture in 2004, and brought with him when he moved on to the MCA in 2009.

"He's really transforming what the role of the museum is," Governor John Hickenlooper, who was in Lerner's first MCA Mixed Taste program, "Show Tunes and Aquatic Plants," told the Times. "It's almost like they are partners in this kind of transformational experience, like what the artist hopes to create for the viewer."

Hickenlooper was the musical expert in that pairing; other combos include the "Cave Painting and Buffalo Bill" lecture that was part of the Arts Meets Beast project, and this season's "Nietzsche and Puppies, Puppies, Puppies!"
