The Museum of Contemporary Art has one of my favorite gift shops! I immediately fell in love with these famous mugshots magnets. I went home with the an Elvis, Mick Jagger and Prince magnet. I love spending random afternoons over at the Museum of Contemporary Art. I feel so inspired whenever I visit any art museum. In fact, I’ve decided to take up painting this summer. I used to draw so much as a child and I miss it.
One of my favorite things about living in Chicago is the fact that the city is emerged in culture. From its many museums to its Broadway plays, there is always some new exhibit or show opening that I want to see. Tuesday was a bit windy and rainy so I decided to get out of the house and spend my day exploring the Museum of Contemporary Art. The museum had five exhibits I’d been itching to see: Warhol and Marisol, Alexander Calder, William J. O’Brien, Isa Genzken: Retrospective and Unbound: Contemporary Art After Frida Kahlo. Here are some of my favorite photos from my trip:
