In the Robert B. & Beatrice C. Mayer Education Center a new installation, Coming Together, is the result of a collaborative residency with artists from two innovative art programs designed by and in solidarity with people with developmental disabilities: the Little City Foundation Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center in Palatine, Illinois, and Die Schlumper in Hamburg, Germany. With inspiration from the architecture of the MCA building and works in the Collection, the artists created a unique, site-specific work that reflects a diversity of individual approaches while maintaining an overall integrity.
The installation complements an exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center on view October 18 to December 29, 2002.
With the launch of this website, the MCA has created a platform for archiving and publishing images and stories from our 50-year history. Though many exhibition pages currently lack descriptions or illustrations, we’re committed to a program of ongoing research that will fill in the blanks over time. If you have information about past MCA exhibitions to share, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
