Over the Weekend: Art by Craft and MCA Denver down on Delgany Street

Indian summer? I think it came and went last Friday when balmy temperatures held into the evening for gallery-goers crossing back and forth on Delgany Street during twin openings at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver and the Denver Handmade Alliance's Art by Craft show across the street. Outdoors, the Deluxe Little Orange Rocket food truck served those truffled mac and cheese balls and bánh mì sliders we all love and the mid-way moon shone over Gonzalo Lebrija's site-specific sculpture Entre La Vida y La Muerte (the car that perpetually nose-dives into a puddle); as the night grew darker, a junk band made beautiful noise in the MCA courtyard. Here's a taste of what folks saw and heard on a lovely downtown evening.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
