The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver opened in 1996 in a renovated fish market, then moved to its present spacious facility on Delgany Street in 2007. In keeping with the theme of creative experimentation with art and ideas, the building was designed to minimize boundaries between the city outside and the galleries inside. Hidden skylights fill exhibit spaces with natural light and a multitude of windows bring Denver's streetscape in. A range of regional, national and international artists and exhibitions rotate in and out of the museum, typically staying for two to four months. There is no permanent collection. There are, however, special events throughout the year, including a summer rooftop concert series on Thursday evenings. Visitors can grab a bite to eat or enjoy a glass of wine at the museum's cafe and bar, and shop for quirky items from around the world in the compact museum shop.
