Tonight: Valet Parking and Cyclist Discount at MoMA

If you’re a Midtown bike commuter and have some free time this evening, MoMA and TA are offering a nice deal to cycling museum patrons.

to MoMA on April 6 and get half-price admission and free bicycle valet
parking! One Monday a month, The Museum of Modern Art stays open until
8:45 p.m. Drop in after hours for exhibitions, films, DJ, cash bar, and
a bite to eat at Cafe 2 (limited evening menu) — plus the first 600
ticket buyers after 5:30 p.m. get free admission on their next visit.

The evening goes green with free bicycle valet parking courtesy of Transportation Alternatives,
New York City’s advocate for biking, walking, and public transit. Rain
or shine, park your bike (enter on 53 Street) and receive a voucher for
half-price Museum admission. Carbon emissions will be offset for the
event, and we’re raffling off a collapsible STRiDA 5.0 Bicycle, ideal for urban transport.

Current exhibits include "Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective" and "Projects 89: Klara Liden." And at 7:00, New York–based artist and filmmaker Carter will host the U.S. premiere of his most recent film, "Erased James Franco," followed by a conversation with its subject and star. Need we say more?

  • It should be totally free occasionally.

  • Lots of problem related with parking in the evening.Mostly the problems occurs always in the evening.
