Arcas

In Greek mythology, Arcas was a hunter who became king of Arcadia. He was remembered for having taught people the arts of baking bread. Arcas was the son of Callisto, he was married to daughter of Amyclas of Sparta. He left a number of children, including the sons Apheidas, Elatus and Triphylus an illegitimate son Autolaus and at least two daughters and Diomeneia. Callisto was a nymph in the retinue of the goddess Artemis; as she would not be with anyone but Artemis, Zeus cunningly disguised himself as Artemis and seduced Callisto. The child resulting from their union was called Arcas. Hera became jealous, in anger, she transformed Callisto into a bear, she would have done the same or worse to her son, but Zeus hid Arcas in an area of Greece, which would come to be called Arcadia, in his honor. Arcas was given into a care of one of the Maia. There, Arcas safely lived until one day, during one of the court feasts held by king Lycaon, Arcas was placed upon the burning altar as a sacrifice to the gods.

He said to Zeus, "If you think that you are so clever, make your son whole and un-harmed". Zeus became enraged and made Arcas whole and directed his anger toward Lycaon, turning him into the first werewolf. Arcas became the new king of Arcadia and the country's greatest hunter. One day, when Arcas went hunting in the woods, he came across his mother. Seeing her son after so long, she went forth to embrace him. Not knowing that the bear was his mother, he went to kill her with an arrow. Zeus however, watching over them, stopped Arcas from shooting Callisto, turned Arcas into a bear putting them into the stars, they are now referred to the big and little bears. When Hera heard of that, she became so angry that she asked Tethys to keep them in a certain place so that the constellations would never sink below the horizon and receive water. Arcas’ bones were brought to Arcadia and buried near an altar dedicated to Hera under the directions of Delphic Oracle. Arcas is referenced in the album The Circus by The Venetia Fair.

Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago

The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is a contemporary art museum near Water Tower Place in downtown Chicago in Cook County, United States. The museum, established in 1967, is one of the world's largest contemporary art venues; the museum's collection is composed of thousands of objects of Post-World War II visual art. The museum is run gallery-style, with individually curated exhibitions throughout the year; each exhibition may be composed of temporary loans, pieces from their permanent collection, or a combination of the two. The museum has hosted several notable debut exhibitions including Frida Kahlo's first U. S. exhibition and Jeff Koons' first solo museum exhibition. Koons presented an exhibit at the Museum that broke the museum's attendance record; the current record for the most attended exhibition is the 2017 exhibition of Takashi Murakami work. The museums collection, which includes Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Kara Walker, Alexander Calder, contains historical samples of 1940s–1970s late surrealism, pop art and conceptual art.

It presents dance, theater and multidisciplinary arts. The current location at 220 East Chicago Avenue is in the Streeterville neighborhood of the Near North Side community area. Josef Paul Kleihues designed the current building after the museum conducted a 12-month search, reviewing more than 200 nominations; the museum was located at 237 East Ontario Street, designed as a bakery. The current building is known for its signature staircase leading to an elevated ground floor, which has an atrium, the full glass-walled east and west façades giving a direct view of the city and Lake Michigan; the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago was created as the result of a 1964 meeting of 30 critics and dealers at the home of critic Doris Lane Butler to bring the long-discussed idea of a museum of contemporary art to complement the city's Art Institute of Chicago, according to a grand opening story in Time. It opened in fall 1967 in a small space at 237 East Ontario Street that had for a time served as the corporate offices of Playboy Enterprises.

Its first director was Jan van der Marck. In 1970 he invited Wolf Vostell to make the Concrete Traffic sculpture in Chicago; the museum was conceived as a space for temporary exhibitions, in the German kunsthalle model. However, in 1974, the museum began acquiring a permanent collection of contemporary art objects created after 1945; the MCA expanded into adjacent buildings to increase gallery space. In 1978, Gordon Matta-Clark executed his final major project in the townhouse. In his work Circus Or The Caribbean Orange, Matta-Clark made circle cuts in the walls and floors of the townhouse next-door to the first museum. In 1991, the museum's Board of Trustees contributed $37 million of the expected $55 million construction costs for Chicago's first new museum building in 65 years. Six of the board members were central to the fundraising as major donors: Jerome Stone, Beatrice C. Mayer and family, Mrs. Edwin Lindy Bergman, the Neison Harris and Irving Harris families, Thomas and Frances Dittmer.

The Board of Trustees weighed architectural proposals from six finalists: Emilio Ambasz of New York. According to Chicago Tribune Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Blair Kamin, the list of contenders was controversial because no Chicago-based architects were included as finalists despite the fact that prominent Chicago architects such as Helmut Jahn and Stanley Tigerman were among the 23 semi-finalists. In fact, none of the finalists had made any prior structures in Chicago; the selection process, which started with 209 contenders, was based on professional qualifications, recent projects, the ability to work with the staff of the aspiring museum. In 1996, the MCA opened its current museum at 220 East Chicago Avenue, the site of a former National Guard Armory between Lake Michigan and Michigan Avenue from 1907 until it was demolished in 1993 to make way for the MCA; the four-story 220,000-square-foot building designed by Josef Paul Kleihues, five times larger than its predecessor, made the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago the largest institution devoted to contemporary art in the world.

The physical structure is said to reference the modernism of Mies van der Rohe as well as the tradition of Chicago architecture. The museum opened at its new location June 21–22, 1996, with a 24-hour event that drew more than 25,000 visitors. For its 50th anniversary in 2017, the museum unveiled a $16 million renovation by architects Johnston Marklee, which redesigned 12,000 square feet within the existing footprint of the original Joseph Paul Kleihues design; the museum operates as a tax-exempt non-profit organization, its exhibitions and operations are member-supported and funded. The board of trustees is composed of 6 officers, 16 life trustees, more than 46 trustees; the current board chair is Michael O'Grady. The museum has a director, who oversees the MCA's staff of about 100. Madeleine Grynsztejn replaced 10-year director Robert F
