A Mass of Contemporary Art



North Adams, Mass.

The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art opened its doors in 1999 in a former industrial complex that was built by the Arnold Print Works in 1860. It has since expanded to include some 250,000 feet of exhibition space. There is an excellent documentary called Museum Town that tells the MASS MoCA story, as well as the impact the museum has had on this post-industrial Western Massachusetts town.

    Interesting collection of contemporary. I think it would take some time to go through Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art and ponder the meaning of the pieces.
