Need something fresh to wear this summer? The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago might be able to help you, especially if you're a fan of Chicago-native street artist Hebru Brantley's work. The creator of unofficial Chicago mascot Flyboy (who graces walls throughout the city) recently moved to Los Angeles, but he's still supporting hometown institutions by launching a new capsule collection through the MCA Store later this week.

The creator of the Nevermore Park pop-up has designed four exclusive shirts for the MCA, with depictions of characters like Lil Mama, Oskee and Gabe, as well as Michael Jordan in Flyboy goggles and a tee that simply reads "Buy art not drugs." The collection also includes a pack of stickers, a puzzle and an exclusive "Sepia #6" color variant of Brantley's Lil Mama Gaia Figure, which will only be available through the MCA.

To celebrate the launch of the capsule collection, Brantley will join MCA assistant curator Gibran Villalobos for a conversation via the MCA's Instagram account on Thursday, May 27 at noon. The pair will talk about Brantley's creative process, the backstories of his cast of characters and the themes that he tries to impart through his work in various media.

If you want to get your hands on any of the latest Brantley T-shirts, statues and stickers, you'll need to point your browser toward the MCA Store website at 1:30pm CST on Thursday, May 27. Check out some photos of a few of the items that will be available (in limited quantities, naturally) below.
