One Connecticut museum is offering free admission for all guests for an entire year, thanks to a nameless act of generosity. The director of communications at MoCA, Westport (Museum of Contemporary Art), Leslie LaSala, said in an email that the non-profit museum "received the unsolicited donation on Sept. 8, 2021," and that the amount covers what the museum expects to earn from gallery admissions for 12 months. "The donation was made by a\u00a0Westport resident who believes that the visual and performing arts matter, and that equity matters in the art world, both in terms of access and in programming," LaSala\u00a0added.\u00a0 Executive director of the museum Ruth Mannes said in a release that the gift helps put the arts within reach for all.\u00a0 \u201cThis gift supports our belief in the power of art to educate, enrich and build connections between us - a power that should be equally accessible to all in the community,\u201d Mannes said. \u201cVisit our exhibition, come back to show your friends what you found to be thought-provoking and meaningful, or bring the kids for a quick drop in, all at no charge.\u201d The museum also announced that its full-service bar, Bar MoCA, will be open during Saturday and Sunday gallery hours and on Thursdays for a weekly happy hour. Additionally, the museum is offering free drop-in studio time for children between 4 and 12 years old on Saturdays from 12 to 2:30 p.m., in which young guests can go through the exhibition, as well as MoCA\u2019s garden and play area.\u00a0 LaSala\u00a0said the museum is "thrilled" to be able to use the donation to provide free access to their exhibitions and other offerings.\u00a0 "Access to arts experiences help us to understand each other better, to consider new ideas, and to foster creative expression, and these benefits should be accessible to all," she said. "As an independent non-profit organization, we rely on the generous support of the community to bring our programs and our mission to fruition." MoCA\u00a0Westport's current exhibition is called, "Between the Ground and the Sky." It runs through Oct. 17 and features "photography from the Who Grows Your Food initiative," according to the exhibition information. It is described as "an intimate photographic journey celebrating the beloved farms and farmers associated with the Westport Farmers\u2019 Market."
