The Museum of Modern Art has been on a trial run as part of Bank of America’s “Museums on Us” program for the first full weekends of November and December, 2014 and January, 2015. What that means is if you have a Bank of America account, just show up at MoMA today or tomorrow and show them your debit card to waive the usual $25 entrance fee. However, it’s not clear whether this means you can also get into the Matisse “Cut-Outs” exhibition … my guess is probably not, because the tickets for that show are based on a timed entry, and checking the MoMA web page for buying Matisse tickets, they’re completely sold out every hour this weekend until 3:00 on Sunday afternoon (as of the time of this blog post). But there’s still plenty of art you can see for free at MoMA, and it looks like the Matisse show is being overrun by cats anyway (this picture here shows Matisse studio assistant Annelies Nelck with cat sitting on top of Apollo on the floor of the Hôtel Régina, Nice, c. 1953).
