The Museum of Modern Art in New York City is the world’s home for modern and contemporary art. Founded in 1929, MoMA was the first museum dedicated to new art and this bold, experimental vision continues to guide us today. We share the most thought-provoking and resonant works, from painting to performance, and are a place of creativity and inspiration for all. UNIQLO has sponsored the UNIQLO Free Friday Nights program at MoMA since May 2013. This program provides free access to the public to the museum from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on every Friday throughout the year in a commitment to make art more accessible to the world.
