MASS MoCA Free Day

Better hurry up, Berkshire County residents! Through January 19th you can obtain free admission to MASS MoCA simply by proving residency.

Proof positive will come in the form of an official ID or utility bill. The galleries are open from 11AM to 5PM every day except Tuesday, with art-making in the Kidspace on weekends.

For the next few days area residents can view a cornucopia of visual and auditory presentations, including—but certainly not limited to—Los Angeles artist Liz Glynn’s The Archaeology of Another Possible Future, a sprawling sculptural experience of sight, sensation, sound, and scent stretching nearly a football field in length; Laurie Anderson’s two visual reality experiences, Chalkroom and Aloft, in which she invites viewers to explore a multi-functional constellation of galleries and installations, (appointments required); a group of Louise Bourgeois’ marble sculptures, some of which have never been seen previously in the United States, and an exhibition of musical instruments handmade from a diverse and unexpected range of materials, collected by Prof. Gunnar Schonbeck. The exhibit brings Schonbeck’s distinct approach to music-making to a wide audience, encouraging visitors and artists to play and experiment.

Regular admission to Mass-MoCA is adults, $20; seniors and veterans, $18; students with ID, $12; children (6–16), $8; EBT/WIC cardholders, $2. The museum is located at 1040 Mass MoCA Way, North Adams, MA, 01247; 413.662.2111;
