    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.

    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.

    It's free and pretty quick. Why not stop in and see the exhibit on display? Not very crowded when I went.

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