A welded metal, abstract sculpture stands on a black pedestal; the sculpture's base resembles a car muffler with a pierced hole and rust.

Long-time Chicago resident Richard Hunt turns eighty this year. To celebrate, the MCA is hosting an exhibition and a conversation between the artist, Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator Naomi Beckwith, and Daniel Schulman, Director of Visual Art, Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.


This program is made possible by Emerge, a donor affinity group that supports the education, exhibition, and acquisition programs of the MCA.
