The MCA is proud to join museums around the country and the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) to celebrate Art Museum Day 2017! In honor of this celebration, admission to the MCA is free for all.

This year's theme is "Art Museums Foster Vibrant Communities." Being part of a community also means being an active citizen and as part of Art Museum Day, the MCA hosts a letter-writing table where stamped postcards are available for citizens to share their views of the proposed budget with their elected representatives.
