ISO peaceful contemplation of our art?

Then we recommend you visit our galleries any day but August 14 and 15.

There are definitely still tickets available for Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival on August 14 and 15, but if you are only interested in seeing the art on display, we recommend you choose a different day for your visit if possible. Tickets to the festival include admission to the galleries. We anticipate 5000+ people in the galleries over the festival weekend.

We are open regular hours, 10 AM – 6 PM, on both Friday, August 13, and Monday August 16.

If you can only visit on August 14 or 15 please arrive as early as you can (the galleries are open at 10 AM.) There are satellite parking lots on Route 2 and Route 8 with shuttle service to the museum entrance. You can download a parking/ shuttle bus map and schedule from our web site.

Although Solid Sound is our biggest draw of the summer we have events every weekend. Upcoming highlights include:

  • This Saturday, August 7Uncle Rock at 11:30 AM
  • Also THIS Saturday, August 7 – Alt Cabaret (hopefully outside under the stars) with Clare and the Reasons at 8 PM.
  • Saturday, August 21A Night of African Film and Music by Nomadic Wax featuring the documentary Democracy in Dakar about the influence of hip hop on Senegalese politices followed by sets from Group Saloum, Boston’s hottest Afropop band and African Underground, a pan-African rap collective.

Remember, our galleries are always open until 7:30 on nights when we have performances. You can combine a visit to the galleries with dinner and a live performance.

Or, embrace the Solid Sound Festival and buy a festival pass which will get you into the galleries and give you the chance to hear non-stop great music all weekend long.

Its Wilco’s only East coast appearance this summer.

5000+ fans can’t be wrong.
