An entertaining and modern gallery in Chicago
The Museum of Contemporary Art is at 220 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago. It was established in 1967 and has been at the current location since 1996. The museum has four floors, and includes a range of media including video, photography, painting, and drawing.
The front of the building has a large kinetic sculpture by Martin Creed with the word "MOTHERS" in neon lettering. A central staircase links the four floors, and the venue looks out to a sculpture park and garden from the upper floor, with views all the way to the lake. There is also a cafe that serves basic meals.
There are a range of exhibits on during Summer 2013 in Chicago. The 'Think First, Shoot Later: Photography from the MCA Collection' is on the second floor until November 10th. There are also installations and sculpture by Amalia Pica.
