Join us for First Friday at the Modern. We are ready to welcome you back to enjoy an evening of art and music.

The first Friday of each month, the Modern and Café Modern team up to bring you live music from the First Friday House Band, and drink specials and tasty light bites in the museum's Grand Lobby from 5 to 8 pm. Invite friends to enjoy a unique opportunity to experience the Modern in the evening. 

The NEW Café Modern and Executive Chef Jett Mora will be serving a Blue Zone-inspired, veg-centric light dining menu in the lobby ($7-$9). Specialty drinks along with beer and wine will be available at the cash bar, with happy hour selections.

Gallery admission is free for everyone on Fridays! A complimentary docent-led, 20-minute tour is available at 6:30 pm.

The ongoing film series, Magnolia at the Modern, offers critically acclaimed films every Friday night.
