FREE Day 2013

MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA
The only thing better than a day at MASS MoCA is a FREE day at MASS MoCA! There will be activities, tours, performances, and more for friends of all ages to enjoy! Cap it all off with a Psychedelic Latin Dance Party with Chicha Libre at 8 PM.
MASS MoCA welcomes new and old friends to visit the galleries free of charge on Saturday, February 9, 2013, from 11 AM to 8 PM at the museum's annual FREE Day. In addition to complimentary gallery admission, MASS MoCA offers an exciting day jam-packed with activities, tours, and performances - in the past, this has included an audience-included danced flash mob, DJ lessons, music performances in the giant freight elevator, a mermaid costume parade, carrot cake-tasting, and art activities inside the galleries inspired by the work on display.
This year, we're excited to include the exciting dance experience, Gaga/people classes, taught by dancers in Batsheva Ensemble or Batsheva Dance Company. Connect to your body and imagination, increase your physical awareness, improve your flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in an accepting atmosphere. Participants must be 16 years or older, wear comfy clothes, and be prepared to dance barefoot. No previous movement experience is necessary. Bring a bottle of water and towel.
"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 Joe Thompson, Director of MASS MoCA.
Please stay tuned for more details and a schedule of events.
