The MCA Denver takes a chance with Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh

These pieces are rugs that he created and there will be videos on each one making the images come alive. Mark Mothersbaugh is an American musician, composer, singer and painter. He is a co-founder of the new wave band Devo and has been its lead singer since 1972. (Photo By Helen H. Richardson/ The Denver Post)
