The VASD Program teamed up with the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver in order to offer RMCAD students with a series of special opportunities and events in conjunction with the MCA Denver exhibition Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia. Events included a screening of The Royal Tenenbaums, a private tour by MCA Denver Director and Chief Animator, Adam Lerner, and a lecture by Mr. Lerner in the MCA Denver’s Who Made the 80’s lecture series. In these special engagements with the exhibition, Adam Lerner gave students behind-the-scenes insight into Mark Mothersbaugh, his work, and the creation of the retrospective exhibition.
