Lessons Learned from MASS MoCA

Blog / August 25, 2017 by Bruner/Cott

Set in more than twenty historic industrial buildings on sixteen acres, the vast art complex known as MASS MoCA – the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art – stands as one of the largest public galleries in the world devoted to the display of contemporary art. MASS MoCA unveiled Phase III of it’s 25-year renovation to the public this past May, and critics from across the country have taken notice of it’s unique and extraordinary grandeur.

Rick Brettell and Mark Lamster, art and architecture critics of The Dallas Morning News, recently paid a visit to the newly-expanded facility, admiring the “gritty allure” that makes MASS MoCA such a spectacular sight.

On it’s sheer size and scale, Lamster commented, “it is such a pleasure to be “lost” in a museum, to have a sense of discovery… [and] MASS MoCA’s architecture is ideal in that is can accommodate so many different scales.” While Brettell added, “among the many pleasure of MASS MoCA is the sense of aimlessness its very enormity gives to any viewer.”

You can read their full article here, which further discusses how contemporary art institutions in Dallas can follow MASS MoCA’s lead and repurpose some of the city’s existing historic buildings into hubs for art, culture, and innovation.
