In celebration of its 40th anniversary, MoMA PS1 will be offering free admission for all New York City residents through October 2017, as part of the support from Marina Kellen French and the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation. The celebration kicks off June 19th with an open house event from 12 – 6 p.m., accompanying a slate of new exhibitions and special projects.

Among the selected exhibitions and projects include “FORTY,” which will feature works by over 40 artists from the “1970’s alternative art spaces movement” and part of the early years of PS1 Contemporary Art Center, as well as the return of “ROCKAWAY!,” scheduled for July 2, featuring a colorful new outdoor exhibit by German artist Katharina Grosse. Other artists on view will be Vito Acconci, Merriem Bennani, Deng Tai, and more.

PS1 is also adding seven new board members: Maria Arena Bell, Adrian Cheng, George Farias, Svetlana Kuzmicheva-Uspenskaya, Lisa Roumell, Robert Soros, and John L. Thomson.

As one of the largest and oldest organizations devoted to contemporary art, MoMA PS1 has been able to turn an old schoolhouse into a space for emerging and established artists to showcase their work.

Free admission is extended to New York City residents until October 15, 2017; for all other visitors, the suggested donation is $10 for general admission, and $5 for students and senior citizens.
