Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago

I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art. The architecture and decor features are beautiful and the exhibits complement the environment perfectly.

The top floor of the Museum holds fascinating modern interior installations by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Shown above is a huge room dividing wall titled "Clouds".

Also displayed are wonderful charcoal drawings by William Kentridge. These drawings aren't just any drawings. They are actually still pieces that make up animated films. Kentridge's films are free to view at the museum. The animations compose compelling, heart-felt, short films commenting on the atrocities in South Africa in the late 80s and early 90s. The style and flow of the animations is like nothing I have even seen.
