Upcoming MCA Show Mentioned in 5280 Magazine / by Monique Crine

"NFL players may have put away their cleats for the season, but Monique Crine’s striking paintings bring the sport back into the spotlight. For this series, the Germany-born, Denver-based artist worked from photographs to produce depictions of professional football players as both idols (kids everywhere want to be them) and tragic figures (think: the national conversation around concussions). These vivid portraits convey the tensions between reality and fantasy that the athletes face every day. Tue-Thu noon-7 p.m.; Fri noon-9 p.m.; Sat-Sun 10 a.m.-5 p.m."
