MOCCA announces FREE admission for remainder of 2010

TORONTO, Ont., June 8, 2010 – The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art is delighted to announce that admission to MOCCA for the remainder of 2010 will be FREE thanks to the generous support of the Hal Jackman Foundation.

MOCCA hopes that this initiative will increase opportunities for audiences to experience and participate in the exhibitions and activities at one of Toronto’s most exciting cultural institutions without the deterrent of admission prices. Embedded within Toronto’s West Queen West Art + Design District, MOCCA is centrally located amongst a diverse range of shops, restaurants and nightclubs that can also be enjoyed by our visitors.

Highlights:

• In 2009, MOCCA received support from the Hal Jackman Foundation to run a successful Extended Opening Hours pilot program.
