Join us for free live jazz concerts every Tuesday, June 3–September 9, 2014, 5:30 pm–8 pm.

A dinner buffet prepared by Wolfgang Puck Catering is available each week for $25 per person, and features a changing menu of dishes created using fresh, locally grown produce from the MCA Farmers' Market (see menu). Tables are limited—call 312.397.4034 or email to reserve your spot.

For a more casual evening, bring a blanket or rent an MCA lawn chair ($5 each) to relax on the garden lawn. Hamburgers, house-made sausages, and a variety of freshly made salads may be purchased from our outdoor grill along with cold beverages, wine, and seasonal cocktails from the cash bar on the lower terrace. Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the sculpture garden.

In case of rain, the event takes place inside Puck's Café.


Tatsu Aoki is a prolific artist, composer, musician, educator, and a consummate bassist and Shamisen Lute player. Based in Chicago, Aoki is one of the most recorded artists in the Chicago music scene, working in a wide range of musical genres—from jazz to traditional Japanese music. He has produced and appears in more than 90 recording projects and over 30 experimental films, and performs both nationally and internationally.

The Miyumi Project features Mwata Bowden, Edward Wilkerson, Jaime Kempers, Kioto Aoki, and Coco Elysses.
