About

With gratitude for your continued support as a Member, Pritzker Director Madeleine Grynsztejn and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago invite you and a guest to attend the Circle and Members’ Preview for Chicago Comics: 1960s to Now and be among the first to view the MCA’s newest exhibition.

Chicago has been a center for comics for decades—a haven not only for making and publishing cartoons, but also for innovating on the medium. Chicago Comics: 1960s to Now tells the story of the art form in the influential city through the work of Chicago’s many cartoonists: known, under-recognized, and up-and-coming.
