Last week, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago announced its plan to invest $16M to expand opportunities for the cross-section of food, culture and art.

The investment is for “finding new ways to bring art, learning and food together, reflecting how people like to experience culture today,” said museum director, Madeleine Grynsztejn.

The project, led by architects Mark Lee and Sharon Johnston, will include a new restaurant that is accessible from the outside of the museum and that will leverage food as a tool for culture consumption.

MCAC estimates the project will be completed by Spring 2017.
