From Around Town (and Elsewhere): Chicago

During a visit to Chicago, I discovered these cards amidst the free literature at a coffee house. The card designs are printed on a thick, off-white, textured card stock, and I loved how bright and bold they were, making them pop out against the other fliers and pamphlets.

The cards are for themed days / events at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The "Mash Flob" is a bring-your-own-radio event at the museum, with a sort of directed flash mob. Sounds like fun to me! See the video below.
