  1. Long Pedestrians pass by the MCA Store entrance, which is set back in a plaza paved with large tiles. The store’s columned entrance includes a door for the disabled and a revolving door and is flanked by two windows. A sign in blue script above the left window reads "Museum of Contemporary Art" and a larger sign over the entrance, also in blue, reads "MCA STORE." The store window display on the left includes an umbrella featuring hands holding lipstick tubes. The store’s right window has penguin figures adorned in necklaces perched atop an electronic sign promoting MCA Stage programs.
