Montclair Art Museum Offers Free Admission To The Unemployed


Share post:

There are a lot of unknowns in the world right now. But one thing is certain — engaging in art can improve your health and well being. To help support the community through these difficult times, Montclair Art Museum today announced that it will offer free admission to anyone currently unemployed due to the pandemic.

“Coming back into the galleries is a revelatory experience – like seeing color for the very first time. We want to share that uplifting experience with all the members of our community,” said Ira Wagner, Interim Director. “Offering free admission to those dealing with unemployment is the Museum’s small way of helping the community carve out some time to surround themselves with art that inspires, challenges, calms or recharges.”

MAM has enacted recommended protocols to provide a safe environment so visitors can focus on their art experience. However, those not ready to enjoy indoor activities can still support their emotional well-being by engaging with art at home. With Virtual MAM, the Museum brings the galleries to you with a curator series of free virtual tours, artists spotlights, art activities, and much more.

Further information on the Museum’s new safety policies and how to purchase tickets is available on the website here.
