MoMA PS1 Announces Free Admission for All New Yorkers for One Year

MoMA PS1 has announced a free admission policy for all of New York City’s five boroughs, beginning October 11, 2015, for the period of one year. The new policy is being underwritten by the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation in honor of New York City artists.

By giving proof of residency—such as a driver’s license, state-issued identification card or utility bill—New Yorkers will be able to enter for free during regular museum hours. (Concerts, performances, fundraisers and ticketed events may still have attendance fees.)

“It is important to give back to New York City, a City with so many artists. MoMA PS1 in Queens has many exhibitions that should be seen by everybody from all five boroughs. I hope the gift will help MoMA PS1 efforts to lower the barriers to enter the museum and reach out to an even wider audience,” said Marina Kellen French, vice president of the foundation.

“MoMA PS1 sees itself as a citizen of all five boroughs with a proud base in Queens,” said Klaus Biesenbach, MoMA PS1’s director and chief curator at large.
