About the museum:
MCA Chicago 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 Museum of Contemporary Art is truly interactive; it offers educational (but fun) opportunities like Arts Camp, school tours and Family Day.
The museum is situated in the middle of an elongated corridor of city park land between Michigan Ave. and Lake Michigan, the former location of a National Guard Armory.
