Jazz Institute of Chicago

Museum of Contemporary Art

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.

Mission Statement
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.
