Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!

So says Bette Davis in the classic “All About Eve”.

Well, we are having quite the bumpy night, day, weeks and more to come with this economy. Not just in the states but all over.
Can’t wait to see the art that comes from this part of our global history.
And luckily you are dealing in a medium that can be traveled easily and communicated immediately.

But we want to help. Sure, we will keep doing our freebie giveaways. There are some other things though.
Man (or woman) does not live by bread alone. You must continually feed the spirit.
And sometimes that happens by having a look at the art around you.
We figured a start may be to point out some of the free museum days around the world at some of the best collections of art.

At the Tate Modern Gallery in London, it’s always free.
MOMA in NYC – free after 4 on Fridays thanks to Target
LACMA – Los Angeles, second Tuesday of each month is free for general admission to the permanent galleries and non-ticketed exhibitions. Plus Monday, October 13, Columbus Day
Tuesday, November 11, Veterans Day
Thanks again, Target.
MOCA in Los Angeles is free Thursdays from 5-8 PM
Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago . Free Free Free ALL THE TIME!
Free 1st Tuesday: SF MOMA (Museum of Modern Art). Third Street between Mission and Howard.
Not completely free but The Metropolitan Museum in NYC you can give a donation of your choice. Really. It’s cool.

In Paris all national museums are free the first Sunday of each month.
Of course all of the Galleries we list on the RESOURCE Page are free to visit.

You know, the museums we listed could also use your yearly membership fees. They are all pretty reasonable. And have some cool benefits. They all usually have a photography exhibit.

Just remember you don’t have to forego these great visits, even if the current financial situation has limited your funds.
Did I say cheap date? Nah, quality cultural outing.

If you have some cool ideas on helping your fellow photo folks get more bang for no buck, let’s share it here.
