Intimidated by contemporary art? Well, don’t be.
The above video gives you a quick, casual virtual spin through MASS MoCA (the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art) in North Adams to give you an idea of some of what you might experience as you meander through gallery after gallery of paintings, sculptures, videos, installations and whatever else is being called art these days. MASS MoCA is the largest center for contemporary visual and performing arts in the US, and it’s got it all.
Really, it’s quite fun. And there’s the added element of surprise, because, well, you never know what you’re going to discover on the wall when you turn the next corner…
FREE DAY: MASS MoCA welcomes new and old friends to visit the galleries free of charge all day – 11am-8pm – on Saturday (February 9). In addition to complimentary gallery admission, the sprawling museum will offer an exciting day jam-packed with activities, tours and performances.
