Along with the Disney Parks and Target, I’d definitely have to say that museums are one of my “happy places!” I don’t know what it is but I could spend hours roaming the halls of any given museum. It doesn’t matter if it’s an art, history or science museum, I love them all. I’m so fortunate to have grown up (and still live in) in Chicago, a city filled with dozens upon dozens of amazing museums.
As I’ve mentioned on the blog countless times, plenty of Chicago museums offer free days to Illinois residents. One of those being the Museum of Contemporary Art, which offers free admission on Tuesdays. Thus making “Tuesdays At The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago” a regular thing for me!
There have been so many new exhibits added since my last visit to The MCA, to see the Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg Exhibit. That’s what I love about museums, no matter how many times you visit them, there’s always something new to see.
Here’s a few of my favorite photos from my visit to The Museum of Contemporary Art:
My “Tuesdays at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago” have become one of my favorite weekly traditions!
I was so excited when I heard that The MCA’s beloved sculpture Felix, by Maurizio Cattelan, was back on display as part of the museum’s 50th anniversary celebration! Felix hasn’t been on display at The MCA since 2006 (welcome back old friend!).
I absolutely loved the new Backstroke of the West exhibit at The Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibit was named after a mistranslation of Revenge of the Sith, which was used for a Chinese bootleg version of the film.
Reduce, reuse, recycle, am I right?
If you’re in the Chicago area I really recommend stopping by The MCA and checking out the Backstroke of the West! The exhibit tells an interesting story of restitution and reconstitution. It also seamlessly blends together social and political boundaries as seen through pop culture! Very interesting indeed.
The extreme Christmas enthusiast in me loved this little corner of the Museum of Contemporary Art!
Get it? It’s popcorn and Christmas ornaments! Question: Do any of you string popcorn together and decorate your tree with it? I’ve seen it done in TV shows and movies but I’ve never known anyone who actually does it!
See you soon Museum of Contemporary Art!
