Happy Birthday Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago! You don't look a day over 49 :) I got the chance to attend ArtEdge 50 this weekend, the long-anticipated anniversary event that marks the MCA’s 50th year and celebrates the opening of Takashi Murakami: the Octopus Eats Its Own Leg.

The master Murakami was on hand sporting an enchanting plush octopus hat, custom matching suit and of course he brought a long his wack-a-doodle friend the octopus.
