Have you ever looked at a work of contemporary art in a museum and wanted to bring it home? Well, now's your chance. MCA Denver's Octopus Initiative is offering any resident of the Denver metro area the chance to borrow and live with a work of art made by a Denver-based artist for ten months. FOR FREE. You in?
As of July 2022, the Octopus Initiative Program is on a hiatus through December 2022. Current Octopus Initiative art borrower’s loans have been extended through December 1, 2022 (woo-hoo)! We will reach out as the date approaches to schedule the return appointment but no further action is needed from you at this time. We hope you continue to enjoy the artwork over the next few months and check back later this year for more details about the program!
