About

Artist Cristian Franco creates fictional punk bands, and develops the ephemera of the music scene surrounding the band. During his time in Denver, he is leading a workshop (led in Spanish with live translation) to teach anyone how to make their own punk rock flyers, using repurposed magazines, photocopiers, and other crafting materials.
The word “flyer” comes from the pieces of propaganda thrown (flown) from planes on ¼ sized sheets of paper during World War II. During the 1960s, flyers were used in Britain to advertise concerts and music-related events. They were (and are) easy to make, and cheaper than traditional billboards. Historically, the flyer is an accessible way to communicate messages and advertise events, a true democratic media outlet.

No artistic experience is required.

Pre-registration required to ensure there are supplies for everyone.

Come for one session, or sign up for them all.

December 5-7TH | 5-7PM

MCA Denver is presenting three artist residencies this fall in collaboration with the Guadalajara art laboratory PAOS. Three artists, Francisco Ugarte, Cristian Franco and Cynthia Gutierrez, will be in residence in Denver for two weeks each, presenting public programming, working with local artists, and collaborating with the teens in MCA Denver led leadership programs. This project is made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
