MCA Denver T-shirt by Sierra Montoya Barela
This variant is currently sold out.
We put out a call for artists to submit a design for an exclusive and limited edition MCA Denver branded t-shirt, asking artists to create work that represented their interpretation of or experience at the museum.
Artist Sierra Montoya Barela was selected as the winner! Here is what she said about the winning design:
"When I think of the MCA Denver I think of rooftop opening celebrations, getting together with friends and sharing a drink while talking about art. I picked tequila as the drink of choice for two reasons. In part, as an homage to my Mexican heritage, as well as the ritual of taking a shot of tequila that I think echo’s rituals in artist’s studios as they work. Preparation, the act, and the aftermath. All in all, I just wanted to make a playful drawing alluding to the idea that I’ll have what the MCA is serving. :)"
