Ver Museo Museum Of Contemporary Art - MCA Chicago, IL

Profile Information
As one of Chicago’s major museum buildings and one of the nation’s largest facilities devoted to the art of our time, the 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 near the historic Water Tower in the heart of the Magnificent Mile, the MCA features special exhibition spaces, naturally-lit collection galleries, a 300-seat theater, gift store, bookstore, café, and a terraced sculpture garden with a view of Lake Michigan.
The MCA was opened as a kunsthalle in October 1967 by a group of culturally concerned Chicagoans who recognized the need for an internationally oriented forum for contemporary art in the city. Within six years, the Museum had made a commitment to building a permanent collection. In 1979, the MCA expanded into an adjacent townhouse, in the process growing to 33,000 square feet, including 11,000 square feet of exhibition space. In 1992, the MCA selected from an international field of 200 applicants Berlin-based architect Josef Paul Kleihues to design its new building and sculpture garden, his first U.S. commission. The new building opened in July 1996. With nearly seven times the square footage of the Museum’s previous facility on Ontario Street, the MCA for the first time has space to install temporary exhibitions and works from its collection simultaneously.
