Damien Hirst Works at MCA/Denver

Three Damien Hirst pieces are currently being shown in The Large Works Gallery at the Musuem of Contemporary Art/Denver. (Sorry, this isn't one of the pieces being shown.) But expect to see a formaldehyded steer, a medine chest filled with pharmaceutical containers and a beautiful butterfly painting. As a single presentation it isn't the most striking show, but Damien Hirst's work should be seen by anyone who has even a slight interest in contemprary art - right now he IS contemporary art.
The opening night party was super fun; with funky cool people and a great pop/electro-punk band from Denver. Definitely check out the exhibit on one of the Friday late night evenings - open till 10pm, get a cocktail on the roof too.
