Hunter Leggitt ’95, played a huge role in the launch of the Octopus Initiative design/build exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Denver in March 2018. Hunter Leggitt Studio built the permanent installation at the museum. Octopus Initiative, or “putting art in the hands of many,” is the museum’s new art lending library which lets you borrow a painting for up to a year for free. MCA launched the project with 150 works, all created by Denver artists, with the goal to offer as many as 500 paintings by 2020. Although the art isn’t for sale, Adam Lerner, the museum’s director and chief animator, says he hopes people will learn about Denver artists through the library and that it will spark people’s interest in buying other pieces from those artists.
