Starting Nov. 17 - when Mass MoCA's incredible Sol LeWitt building opens - the museum will be increasing its admissions fee from $12.50 for adults to $15. I asked why.
Spokesman Katherine Myers:
"We're increasing our offerings by 30% AND presenting art that you absolutely cannot see anywhere else in the world. We haven't raised our rates in several years yet everything from health insurance to heat, sheet-rock to Sharpies has risen -- some by more than 30%. I'm assuming that in the last 5 years the Globe has raised its ad rates and the price of buying the paper. It was time for an increase and MASS MoCA is worth it!"
