Beginning in March, BGC Gallery will offer free gallery admission on the first Friday of each month. In addition, the Gallery will remain open until 8 pm on those dates.

Alexis Mucha (MA ’07), associate director of sales, marketing, and rights for publications and co-chair of BGC’s Diversity, Equity, Access, and Inclusion Working Group, proposed the idea. Mucha noted that free tickets and extended hours would make attending the BGC exhibitions more accessible to a broader audience. BGC founder and director Susan Weber embraced the plan and encouraged Gallery staff to implement it in time for BGC’s spring exhibitions, Shaped by the Loom: Weaving Worlds in the American Southwest and Staging the Table in Europe 1500–1800.

The BGC Gallery extends its efforts to make exhibition attendance accessible to all by participating in the NYC Culture Pass program offered by the New York, Brooklyn, and Queens Public Libraries. With the Culture Pass, library card holders receive free admission to dozens of cultural institutions including BGC Gallery.
