Goodnight Irene

Director Joe Thompson reports on how we coped with hurricane Irene:

We’ve never, ever closed MASS MoCA for a weather event, but Irene was spooky and we decided to play it safe.  (During one of last winter’s blizzards we proudly announced online that we would be open, and several people took me to task for requiring employees to trudge to work in the snow…which I confess took me aback.  I felt like I lived on a different planet.  It might have been a mistake to have employees make a long drive, but by and large, we actually like getting the museum open, and our tough-weather visitors are some of our best. They really want to be here, and so we’re really happy to host them). Read the rest of this entry »

Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful…

…but MoCA is sooo delightful..

Wow. We’re all aware how scary it is outside but these are the best days to spend in a nice warm museum!

The question is…How does one shovel an outdoor sculpture on a day like today?

Should we use a hair dryer? Or a leaf blower? Or what about a feather duster?

What’s the point anyway? The snow is coming down faster than we can push it away!..But some of our outdoor exhibits stood up tough against the crazy snow…

Special thanks to ANYONE who came out to MASS MoCA today. You are awesome.

Check in with the blog tomorrow for another update on Sean Foley!
