When we went to the Museum of Modern Photography on Michigan Avenue (MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY) in November 2014, we were doing a MICHAEL SCHMELLING photo exhibition entitled YOUR BLUE. The photographer is an American, born in 1973. The introduction said that he went deep into the life of musicians and experienced the creation and performance of blues. Many of his works reflected the life related to blues. The pictures are very good. The Museum has facilities for inquiring about music materials. According to information, Blues, the ancestor of jazz, rock and gospel songs, was originally sung by early American slaves when they expressed their moods. It was full of depression and disharmony, and sounded very melancholy. It was totally different from the music of white society at that time. Blues did not originate in Chicago but were popular in Chicago. In Chicago blues is a way of life, if you want to laugh, it will make you happy, if you want to cry, it will be your sad music. Every summer there is a blues concert in Chicago. We saw Blues singing on the subway and on the street, but unfortunately we didn't go to the bar to experience blues music once. You can search and listen to albums in the exhibition hall. Tickets are donated voluntarily. Don't miss music, especially blues.
I like this museum very much. There are several photographers in it. Although the museum is free, they welcome you to donate $5, which is worth it. The exhibition featured photographs of transsexuals and homosexuals banned in Iran. There are seats and information about each photographer on the wall. Very interesting photos and videos.
Free. I just saw a magnificent exhibit. Regrettably, I missed the artist forum. Tempting calendar of events.
I'm a shutterbug myself, and I could spend all day in there and not be done. The works are amazing, and there are more all the time.
It's a very good museum related to photography. There are many works of art masters on display here.
It's an interesting Photography Museum with modern themes. There are too many photos to impress you.
For me who like photography, it's very attractive and experienced.
