Museum of Contemporary Art

Credited with giving Frida Kahlo, Jeff Koons, and Gerhard Richter their first exhibitions, the MCA has been celebrating the creative process since 1967. Whether it is in the gallery space or a 300-seat theater, this institution is all about taking risks and defining the cutting edge. Next up? The blockbuster David Bowie exhibition, slated for Fall 2014.
