If Takashi Murakami’s new exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art (220 E. Chicago) got your creative juices flowing — or if you haven’t checked it out yet — consider booking a staycation at the Thompson Chicago (21 E. Bellevue). The luxe hotel partnered with the museum to offer guests a limited-time package, including 20 percent off exhibition tickets and a 10 percent discount at the museum gift shop. Plus, sign up for a private screen-printing class — one of Murakami’s favorite techniques — at the Hyde Park Art Center (5020 S. Cornell) and get your very own Murakami poster to take home. The Thompson will also display two original Murakami prints signed by the artist.
