Not Always Your Cup of Tea
The MCA continues to challenge visitors with a range of contemporary art.
Because of the limited amount of space that was in the old building, it seems like a lot of my memories of exhibits are more here at the big—the big house. But I do—There was a Rauschenberg exhibit I recall at the old space, the Dan Flavin. And here, of course, we can't ignore the David Bowie, which I think put—just put the museum on the international map. But it's interesting, because contemporary art is such an ethereal kind of thing. And I know that being a huge supporter of the museum, I can still come to exhibits and say, "That's not my cup of tea." It's a challenging thing to look at contemporary art and I have a lot of friends who don't take the time to do it, but I think it's a real important thing, and important for the city of Chicago to have this amazing institution to expose people to different artwork.
