First Fridays

Museum admission and gallery programs are free the first Friday evening of most months (except September and January). Enjoy gallery talks, music performances, and sketching, or simply find yourself in the company of the Old Masters and art enthusiasts from around the world. Please note that children under 10 will not be admitted.

Principal support for First Fridays is provided by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, with additional funding from Margot and Jerry Bogert, Barbara G. Fleischman, Sally and Howard Lepow, the Gilder Foundation, and Marianna and Juan Sabater. First Fridays also are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
