CLEVELAND — The Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland announced beginning on March 16, it will offer free admission as part of an effort to make the arts accessible to everyone.

Free admission to the museum is part of a new initiative celebrating the 50th anniversary of the museum called OPEN HOUSE, a set of initiatives that values diversity, inclusion and accessibility to everyone.

Aside from free admission, the OPEN HOUSE initiative includes an engagement guide apprenticeship program, enhanced onsite programming for families and teens and the addition of an education specialist.

“Removing the economic barrier to visitation is just one phase of our OPEN HOUSE initiative," said Jill Snyder, moCa's Kohl Executive Director.

Gifts from The Kelvin & Eleanor Smith Foundation, The Connor Foundation, and The Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation helped create the future free admission entry.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary season, the museum is hosting a series of events throughout the year.
