When Adam Lerner moved to the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, he brought with him the fabulous Mixed Taste program he'd started at Belmar, which pairs lectures on two very different topics in a delicious culture clash.
Tonight's double dip, which starts with drinks at 6 p.m. and the event at 6:30, pairs "Cave Painting & Buffalo Bill." But the fun doesn't end there: The dual discussion marks the start of the three-day Art Meets Beast, a "nose-to-tail bison roast" that will continue with tomorrow's bison butchering by Jimmy Cross of Marczyk Fine Foods, and Thursday's "Art Meat City" lecture, followed by a Beast Roast prepared by some of the city's top chefs, who'll be given different parts of the animal to cook.
Jonathan Shikes, who'll be on hand tomorrow to document the butchering, dished more details on Art Meets Beast here.
For tickets to any of the events -- all are at the museum, 1485 Delgany Street -- call the MCA at 303-298-7554, ext. 200. The museum website was having some problems yesterday, but you can still read about the program on the Art Meets Beast page.
