One of the nation’s largest facilities devoted to the art of our time, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago documents contemporary visual culture through thought-provoking exhibitions that feature art created since 1945. 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. The museum boldly interweaves exhibitions, performances, collections, and educational programs to excite and challenge visitors and to provide insight into the creative process.

Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, the MCA boasts a gift store, bookstore, Marisol Restaurant, a 300-seat theater, and a sculpture garden with panoramic views of Lake Michigan.


The MCA Store is an ever-changing landscape of new ideas and great design from artists and makers in Chicago --  and around the world.
