First lady Michelle Obama visited the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago this past Friday to tour “Kelly James Marshall: Mastry,” the exhibition of works about African American life by the acclaimed Chicago-based artist. Her visit coincided with the official announcement that the Obama Presidential Center would be located in Chicago’s Jackson Park.

Mrs. Obama was accompanied on a tour of the exhibition by MCA Pritzker Director Madeleine Grynsztejn, as well as the artist and his wife, actress Cheryl Lynn Bruce. The show runs through Sept. 25 at the MCA, and then moves on to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
