Vision and Mission
The MCA's mission is to bring artists and audiences together, presenting contemporary art and culture in ways that illuminate what it means to be a citizen of both Chicago and the world.
Who We Are
We believe that the diversity of ideas and the multiplicity of voices that these community members bring to our conversation are key to the museum's vitality. Find profiles for the artists, teens, teachers, volunteers, staff, and many others who make us who we are.
Our team cares about contemporary culture and works hard to bring it to our audiences. You don't have to be an artist or an art history major—just dedicated and open minded. Check out our current job openings, internships, and volunteering opportunities.
The press team is always happy to accommodate the needs of the media and can work closely with members of the press to provide advance media calendars, press releases, images, and arrange interviews.
The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

MacArthur Foundation; and government agencies. Programming is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
