Community Programming in EJ Hill: Brake Run Helix

 

  • Special Event

  • MASS MoCA

EJ Hill’s exhibition Brake Run Helix is an offering to our community—not only to experience the individual and collective joy of the roller coaster at its center, but also to activate the exhibition’s stage through conversations, performances, and gatherings in the spirit of joy.

Join us as we work alongside Hill and partners in the Berkshires and around the world to convene live events in the exhibition in the spirit of joy. Keep an eye right here for news about upcoming programming, which will be announced on a rolling basis.
