Come with APRA-IL to the MCA! 

Join Mary Ellen Murphy, Volunteer Docent, for a private tour of Surrealism: The Conjured Life at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art on Tuesday, May 17th at 5:00 PM.

Surrealism: The Conjured Lifepresents more than 100 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs that demonstrate the deep currents that Surrealism sent through the international art world—and especially through Chicago—since its emergence in the first half of the twentieth century. A global movement that encompassed a wide number of art forms, including film, theater, poetry, and literature, Surrealism came of age with poet André Breton’s formal declaration in 1924. This deeply emotional and psychological art form flourished in the 1930s and 1940s—turbulent times of economic instability, rapidly changing social mores, and war.

Please enter on the Ground Floor at Pearson (Theater / Education entrance), check in with the Box Office staff.  The group will proceed to the 2nd floor galleries for the tour, which will last around 45 minutes. Admission is free on Tuesdays and there is a free coat/bag check.  The museum is open until 8:00 PM.

Apra-IL is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization.
