Last month we asked for your help in meeting a pivotal challenge — to raise $750,000 in COVID-19 relief funding to trigger a $250,000 challenge grant from The Robert W. Wilson Charitable Trust. You stepped up. Thank you.The outpouring of support from members, patrons, artists, trustees, and neighbors was simply awesome: we received more than 1,700 gifts, totaling more than $1,000,000. We deeply appreciate your contributions, and will need every single dime maintaining this noble factory campus while we work behind the scenes, prepping galleries and courtyards for your arrival.

With fingers crossed, and masks in place, that’s coming soon. We cannot wait to welcome you back so that we can thank you in person for your dedication and support.


It’s true: we are masked noses to the grindstone, getting ready to have you back to MASS MoCA’s vast, airy galleries — and maybe even an intimate-yet-socially distanced performance or two; we’ll see. A slew of new safety measures will be in place to ensure your well-being — as well as the safety of our staff, artists, and our neighbors on this museum campus — including pre-purchased, timed-entry admission tickets.Your next visit to MASS MoCA will require you to purchase limited timed-entry admission tickets in advance of your arrival. Of course, once you’re in — with more than 250,000 sq. ft. of museum galleries to explore (which is to say nothing of the extensive system of courtyards and grounds of this factory campus in the heart of downtown North Adams) — we invite you to stay as long as you need to explore MASS MoCA at your own pace.

More information about our reopening plans will be announced soon, so stay tuned.

Last year New York Magazine noted that MASS MoCA’s “luxuriant spaces are seemingly all yours” with each visit. That’s perhaps never been more true — MASS MoCA’s acres of well-ventilated galleries are filled with an abundance of new art, including a massive installation examining climate change by Blane De St. Croix, Wendy Red Star’s examination of the representation of indigenous peoples on view in Kidspace (reservations required), and 10 artists exploring communication and translation in Kissing through a Curtain.  This might just be your best visit to MASS MoCA yet.
