But, the selection at the Museum of Contemporary Art is better than the average trinkets you don't really want schtick you're used to at other institutions—there are some seriously cool , collectable items to be found. The museum itself is known for showcasing cutting-edge artists and exhibitions, and the creativity obviously doesn't stop at the art. Click through to see some of the newest pieces available for purchase, and ogle the awesome accessories and out-of-this-world home finds that you can actually take out the door. Exit through the gift shop, right?
