    It's VERY small. May have been my luck and taste, but did not love the exhibit when I visited. Good thing is that it's free/suggested donation.

    For someone who doesn't know much about photography... It's just a 10-min visit...

    Fun little (free) museum. Be sure to make it up to the third level where they have records you can listen to.

    MoCP always does a good job of bringing comprehensive contemporary work to Chicago. Don't forget that the gallery space continues on 2nd and 3rd floors.
