Museums In the Park

The Museum of Contemporary Art is excited to be one of 11 Chicago cultural institutions that make up Museums In the Park. Through this partnership and generous support from the Chicago Park District, the MCA participates in the Park District’s Park Voyagers program, providing Chicago youth with after school art programs and their families with on-site programming at the museum.

MCA Teacher Advisory Committee

The Teacher Advisory Committee is made up of Chicago area teachers who work together to create and advise on projects that make connections between contemporary art and other subject areas. The committee is comprised of Chicago Public School teachers, suburban teachers, private school teachers, art teachers, non-art teachers, and MCA Education Department staff members.
