Madeleine Grynsztejn Pritzker Director


In 2008, Madeleine Grynsztejn was appointed Pritzker Director of the MCA, bringing more than 20 years of institutional experience and a new vision for the museum. She immediately set about honing the MCA's identity as an artist-activated and audience-engaged contemporary art museum, working with staff, board members, and patrons to ensure the continuation of our integral role in Chicago's cultural, intellectual, and emotional community. As the museum approaches its 50th year, Grynsztejn continues to advance the arts with dynamic exhibitions and performances, broaden our audience base, and strengthen our position as a cultural leader locally, nationally, and internationally.
