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, and demonstrations at venues throughout the city. Each spring and fall, dozens of venues will open their doors to invite the public in to see and shop for original artwork.

After touring Madison's vibrant arts scene, swing by the MMoCA Lobby for the official Gallery Night After Party. With a full night of music, complimentary snacks, and a cash bar by Fresco Rooftop Restaurant & Lounge, and hands-on art activities, this party is not to be missed. MMoCA galleries will be open late so that attendees can enjoy art after dark

Gallery Night is held from 5-9 pm, though some participating venues set their own hours. Gallery Night is a free event, unless otherwise noted. The Gallery Night After Party is free for members, $5 for non-members.

Gallery Night is sponsored by Design Concepts, with media support from Isthmus.
