Kovler Atrium & Kern Terrace is a private event space located inside the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, IL. Just moments from the Magnificent Mile and with views of Lake Michigan, it is ideal for social gatherings and corporate functions. This modern space is located on the main floor and offers views of the museum’s celebrated sculpture garden. The Space The atrium is a lofty area featuring minimal white walls and high ceilings. The long, airy room is full of windows that allow natural light to pour in. Floor-length glass doors lead to Kern Terrace, a refreshing outdoor section for banquets and parties in the summertime. Kovler Atrium & Kern Terrace can accommodate up to 1,000 guests, with multiple options available in terms of layout and setup. The Experience Access to the museum’s internationally acclaimed galleries is an added bonus of hosting an occasion at this destination. Guests can peruse the modern and influential artworks for up to three hours as part of their cultural experience. Managers and team members of MCA Rentals assist in the curation and smooth-running of all events. They will strive to reflect the desired décor, whether hosts envisage a lavish affair with flowers and uplighting or a neutral, professional tone.
