Admission to Westport's MoCA gallery (the Museum of Contemporary Art) is free for one year, thanks to a gift by an anonymous donor.
“Visit our exhibition, come back to show your friends what you found to be thought-provoking and meaningful, or bring the kids for a quick drop in, all at no charge,” said Ruth Mannes, MoCA Westport’s Executive Director.
The Museum also announced that Bar MoCA, a full-service bar in the Museum, is now open during gallery hours on Saturdays and Sundays, along with a weekly Happy Hour on Thursdays. The Museum also offers free drop-in studio time for ages 4–12 from noon to 2:30 on Saturdays.

Wednesday: 12:00 – 4:00
Thursday: 12:00 – 7:00
Friday: 12:00 – 4:00
