How to Visit an Art Museum this Weekend for Free


This Saturday, May 18, both locations of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego with be open and free to the public from 11:00am until 5:00pm. The museum is participating in Art Museum Day, which is an international initiative by the Association of Art Museum Directors. For more information on this event, head to MCASD's website.

I just visited MCASD's Downtown Campus last weekend and the main building is COOL, with a capital C. And you know how I feel about their La Jolla Campus...

To my friends living outside SoCal, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston are also participating. This is HUGE because adult admission to the MET and the MFA is usually $25 and at the Whitney it is $18.
