About Gallery Night

Showcasing the city's vibrant arts community, Gallery Night is a long-time Madison tradition. Organized each spring and fall by MMoCA, Gallery Night offers art lovers and art novices alike an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of exhibitions, opening receptions, special events, demonstrations, and refreshments at venues throughout the city.

Gallery Night is held from 5-9pm, though some participating venues set their own hours. 

Gallery Night After Party

After touring the city, stop by MMoCA from 9-11pm for the official Gallery Night After Party. DJ Phil Money will be setting the mood as guests enjoy hands-on art activities, complimentary artisanal pizza from The Roman Candle, snacks, and a cash bar. MMoCA's galleries will be open late so that guests can enjoy art after dark.

For information on Gallery Night, please contact Kaitlin at kaitlin@mmoca.org or 257.0158 x224.
