Women’s Board


Since the MCA's founding in 1967, the members of the Women’s Board have collaborated with each other and with the museum to create dynamic programs and projects that have helped establish the MCA as an important and vibrant cultural institution. These programs have included: a lecture and film series, an art travel program (both foreign and domestic), the docent program, the community affiliate program, the MCA Store, an MCA restaurant, the opening night celebration of EXPO CHICAGO (Vernissage), Family Days, and, most recently, artsmart.

The Women’s Board also plays the important role of ambassador for the MCA. Board members focus considerable effort on staying abreast of what is going on at the museum. In this way, the Board is better able to raise awareness of the MCA throughout the greater Chicago area.

Membership on the Women's Board is by invitation only. In order to be eligible for membership on the Women's Board, you must be an MCA Circle Donor.
