Check it out: The Museum of Contemporary Art’s current display:
Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967
September 29, 2007 – January 6, 2008

The MCA has just opened their newest exhibit, a collection of works that examines the relationship between the visual arts and Rock and Roll music and its culture. Curated by Dominic Molon, the exhibit spans from 1960s to the present, showing work and music from all over the world (though it seems primarily from the US and Europe).
