Foursquare Tips

  • Nuff said.
  • One of the nation's largest facilities devoted to the art of our time the Museum offers exhibitions of art created since 1945. It boasts a terraced sculpture garden with a great view of Lake Michigan.
  • With musicians and dancers performing in the galleries, artists getting bigger shows, and young curators infusing fresh programming ideas, the MCA is doing the most to attract a new audience: you.
  • Free on Tuesdays. During the summer, catch their Tuesdays on the Terrace. Free jazz. Free art. Good shit.

  • Love this place. Be sure to browse gift shop.
  • Wife got me stuck there for 3 hours, but totally worth it.
  • Un muse remarquable. Superbe collection.
  • Admission is free for Illinois residents on Tuesdays, year-round.
  • A must see in downtown. The rotating exhibitions are fantastic. Every show I've seen at MCA has helped me better understand contemporary art.
  • Every Tuesday's free!. On First Fridays, relax after a long work week. Specialty drinks, Wolfgang puck appetizers, live performances, the only iMac G5 digital dating bar, creation stations, and more.
  • The MCAs monthly First Fridays event remains a solid spot for mingling year-round, with an in-the-know crowd flocking there in droves no matter what the weather has in store.
  • Never disappoints....gift shop best place for gifts!
  • BRUNCH BUFFET is the name of the game. Often gets busy on Sundays, so call ahead for reservations. Best way to cram food+art together.
  • They have an amazing gift shop I could seriously spend so much time (and money) in that place!
  • hit the gift shop for souvenirs. Best museum gift shop in the city
  • enjoyed the cafe too
  • If modern art is your thing, make some time for a walk through Chicagos Museum of Contemporary Art.
  • Sometimes I wonder if contemporary art is a joke the artist is playing on the world.
  • Krakow has amassed a following large enough for the MCA to feature his work during a month-long exhibit. Stop in this month to browse the exhibit, and check out live performances on Tuesday, May 11th.
