Denver’s Museum of Contemporary Art celebrates 25th anniversary

Nora Abrams directs the Museum of Contemporary Arts and led MCA Denver through COVID-19 lockdown.

On Friday the 13th of March 2020 – three days before Colorado sank into quarantine — Denver’s  Museum of Contemporary Arts closed its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As post-lockdown reemergence unfolds, MCA Denver prepares to celebrate a silver anniversary in 2022.

Museum director Nora Burnett Abrams celebrates the silver linings forged by tumultuous events of 2020 and the first half of 2021. When I met with Abrams, I caught her contagious enthusiasm for the museum’s newest direction: a flourishing online presence that extended MCA Denver far beyond the bricks and mortar museum.
