Each June, MMoCA’s Rooftop Cinema highlights experimental and art films and video under the stars. Throughout fall, MMoCA’s Spotlight Cinema series features Madison premieres of critically-acclaimed and award-winning narrative films and documentaries from around the world.

MMoCA Art & Gift Fair

A fun-filled weekend of relaxed shopping at nearly 100 booths filled with art, gourmet food, and specialty gifts; wine and tasty beverages at cash bars, live music, dance performances, and other attractions for the whole family.

Art Fair on the Square

One of the Midwest’s most popular and highly regarded outdoor celebrations of the arts will return to the Capitol Square July 11 and 12, 2020 as MMoCA presents the 62nd annual Art Fair on the Square.

Gallery Night

Twice a year, lovers of art, culture, and community flow into galleries, museums, cafes, restaurants, and other local businesses to enjoy a community-wide night out like none other.

Art Velo

Shake off the winter doldrums at this high-energy party-on-a-bike. Each February, MMoCA’s glass-encased lobby is transformed for an indoor cycling experience.

Chroma

At this immersive color experience, guests enjoy artist and designer-created color-rich environments, artist-led experiences, and hands-on group art projects on each level of the museum. Chroma celebrated color: how it feels, its intensity and beauty, and the way we use it in our lives – this vibrant, biennial event was unlike any other.

Hair Affair

High-flying hair sculptures, designed by premier Wisconsin-based salons, take center stage as models descend the museum’s stunning glass staircase and mingle with guests in the MMoCA lobby.
