mfaNOW Overnight: State of the Party

  • Museum of Fine Art 465 Huntington Avenue Boston, MA, 02115 United States (map)


Join the MFA for an all-night party taking place in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art as part of #mfaNOW, a season celebrating contemporary art and artists. Enter through the Linde Family Wing Entrance at 9 pm to discover the bold art of LA-based artist Frances Stark, rarely seen after-hours footage of Christian Marclay’s 24-hour video collage The Clock, abstract prints by Terry Wintersprovocative works from the MFA’s collection, and an unexpected line-up of programming inside and outside the building.

Food and drink available for purchase. Enjoy food trucks, live music and DJs, lectures, artist demonstrations, performance art, and more. Dance all night or lace up your kicks for a late-night run outside the Museum. Late nights not your thing? Stop by early for coffee and conversation, kids’ art making and story hour.

Free entry ends at 9 am, but if you’re already there, stay and enjoy the day at the MFA.

On social media, #mfaNOW and live streaming onsite encourage followers to share their experiences and spread the word about what’s happening in real time NOW—from film and food to talks with artists, activists, and change makers.

Guests of all ages are welcome. Visitors wishing to consume alcohol must be 21+. Valid ID with proof of age is required to purchase alcohol. Wristbands will be distributed upon entry, must be worn at all times during the event, and are required for re-entry.

All bags are subject to inspection by Museum staff. Backpacks and large bags are not permitted. All other smaller bags are strongly discouraged, and may need to be checked upon entry.
