“devoted to the art of our time”

One of the nation's largest facilities devoted to the art of our time, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) offers exhibitions of the most thought-provoking art created since 1945. The MCA documents contemporary visual culture through painting, sculpture, photography, video and film, and performance. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, the MCA boasts a gift store, bookstore, restaurant, 300-seat theater, and a terraced sculpture garden with a great view of Lake Michigan. The mission of the MCA is to be an innovative and compelling center of contemporary art where the public can directly experience the work and ideas of living artists, and understand the historical, social, and cultural context of the art of our time. The Museum boldly interweaves exhibitions, performances, collections, and educational programs to excite, challenge, and illuminate our visitors and to provide insight into the creative process. The MCA aspires to engage a broad and diverse audience, create a sense of community and be a place for contemplation, stimulation, and discussion about contemporary art and culture.

The MCA might be one of Chicago's lesser known museums, but it's easily among my favorites! We recently visited during the David Bowie Is exhibit and loved the entire experience. Be sure to wander through the sculpture garden if weather permits!

Great museum, especially if you don't like spending all day long going to a museum. The MCA is a really good 3-4 hour activity and almost always have really interesting exhibits. I've taken friends visiting from all over the place and everyone loves it! Good for a rainy afternoon.
