Coffee and Art: Maurizio Cattelan


Coffee, conversation, and great artworks . . . what better way to start a Saturday morning? Experience it for yourself as you look carefully at works on view in the MCA’s galleries. Then make connections to other artworks, histories, and ideas as you take part in a relaxed, facilitated discussion that helps you think through the art of our time. Led by experts from Chicago’s art community. No previous knowledge necessary.
