With an empty museum as their canvas, a number of our favorite Instagram photographers were granted access to the MCA last week in the hours before we opened to the public. Their creativity captured the museum and art in completely new ways, changing the way our artworks and exhibitions appear. Enjoy a few selections below and see more of #emptyMCA on Instagram.
