MOCA offers free admission to all through Friday

November 16, 2009 |  5:12 pm


Suffering from MOCA fatigue after the museum's no-expense-spared 30th anniversary celebration? Well, here's some MOCA-related news that's sure to pique your interest. 

The museum is offering free admission for everyone this week at its locations on Grand Avenue in downtown L.A. and at the Geffen Contemporary in Little Tokyo. Normal operating hours apply, which means that the venues are closed to the public on Tuesday and Wednesday. The offer is scheduled to run through Friday, the museum said.

A museum spokeswoman said free admission this week is being sponsored by Ovation TV. (You'll remember Ovation as one of the parties that helped give LACMA's weekend film program a stay of execution.)

Currently on view at the museum is "Collection: MOCA's First Thirty Years," which features works from the museum's permanent collection. 

For MOCA members, the benefits keep rolling through the rest of the month. On Saturday, the museum is hosting a members-only birthday bash. In addition, the museum said it is offering members free museum admission and a 20% discount at select museum stores during Thanksgiving weekend.
