The MCA’s Teen Creative Agency (TCA) hosts the Mutant Salon, an afternoon of interactive costume-making and conversation. Examine the ways we express, disguise, and transform ourselves. Explore how artists use costuming for ritual, celebration, and identify formation.


The Elizabeth Morse Charitable Trust is the generous sponsor of Teen Creative Agency. Major support is provided by Exelon. Additional support is provided by Lewis S. and Anne Neri Kostiner, and Luminarts Cultural Foundation at the Union League Club of Chicago.
