Artists are a driving force behind everything we do at the MCA. They play an integral role in our programs—and make up an important part of our audience, too! All of the artists listed here are represented in our collection, or have participated in a program or publication. Their profiles link to exhibitions or programs they have contributed to, or blog posts they have written, as well as their works in the MCA's permanent collection. Artists whose work is represented in the collection are granted lifetime membership to the museum. We enjoy welcoming them to our exhibitions, events, and programs. If you are an artist whose work is in the MCA Collection and you have not received your membership, please call our curatorial department at 312-397-3848.
