Looking for an excuse to visit a museum? The Museum of Contemporary Art is marking the opening of its new exhibition, "The Freedom Principle: Experiments in Art and Music, 1965 to Now" (we gave it 4 stars), with a day of free admission for Illinois residents. Guests can show up from noon to 7pm on July 11, when the MCA will present a series of artist talks and workshops that expand upon the exploration of jazz and art found in "The Freedom Principle." The museum will also host performances by the Natural Information Society (1pm), Reid Duo (2:30pm) and Mike Reed's People, Places and Things (5:30pm). Of course, attendees will also be able to enjoy the rest of the work on display at the MCA, including current exhibitions like "Keren Cytter," "Chicago Works: Faheem Majeed" and "S, M, L, XL."
