MIXED TASTE SUMMER SERIES 2013: TAG TEAM LECTURES ON UNRELATED TOPICS
NEW SERIES BEGINS JUNE 2013 WITH TOPICS RANGING FROM ZOMBIES TO TYRANNOSAURUS REX
Now back at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver

DENVER (May 14, 2013) – Mixed Taste: Tag Team Lectures on Unrelated Topics returns once again to the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (MCA Denver) every Thursday from June 6 through August 29, 2013. This year’s lineup includes 12 weeks of intriguing topics ranging from Zombies & Raw Milk Cheese to Tyrannosaurus Rex & Lucha Libre, with new speakers as far-flung as local filmmaker Alexandre Philippe paired with goat farmer Julie Schondel to chief curator of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science Dr. Scott Sampson paired with Mexican wrestler Delta Jr.

This year, Mixed Taste returns to the Museum of Contemporary Art, where lectures will take place in the Whole Room, with refreshing alcoholic (and nonalcoholic) beverages and tasty snacks.

As always, Mixed Taste rules remain the same. Mixed Taste’s unique format features two seemingly unrelated topics presented by two speakers; the first speaker speaks for 20 minutes, then the second speaker covers a separate topic for another 20 minutes. This is followed by a question-and-answer session on both topics, at the same time. During the first part of the program, speakers are not allowed to make connections between topics, whereas during the Q & A, anything can happen.

With 12 weeks of learning and entertainment, every Thursday evening is sure to be extraordinary.
