It’s a tradition of sorts.
In fact, “this is one of our favorite days of the year. Encouraging new visitors to give us a try, welcoming back old friends, and thanking our neighbors for their continued support is a delight,” says MASS MoCA Director Joe Thompson. “We’re especially excited that our FREE Day visitors will get to check out our breathtaking exhibit, ‘Xu Bing: Phoenix,’ which opened at the end of December in Building 5.”
So on Saturday, February 9, from 11 AM to 8 PM MASS MoCA welcomes both brand new and seasoned visitors to let their curiosity run wild, to explore the galleries free of charge at the museum’s annual FREE Day, sponsored by Berkshire Gas. In addition to complimentary gallery admission, MASS MoCA will offer a full day of activities, performances, tours, face painting, an Elevator Music Festival, and more. Free tours leave the lobby every 30 minutes starting at 11 AM; the last tour begins at 6 PM.
