Kids Free in October!

We are proud to participate in Kids Free in October!

Jet Set Responsibly with Uber

We've teamed up with Uber so you can drink responsibly at Monte Carlo!

Uber is an app that connects you with a driver at the push of a button. Track the arrival of your ride, payment is cashless, and you’ll even receive a text message when your driver arrives.

To get a free trip up to $20 on your first Uber ride, sign up at, or download the app, and enter the promo code MCJETSET.

Utilize our galleries as a place of learning and exploration!

Our Education Department is gearing up for a new academic year with YOU in mind. Be prepared to explore contemporary art through lively conversations in the galleries, learn and contribute by becoming a Teen Advisor or an Intern, or take part in an art history seminar course—there’s something for everyone.

Here’s a sample of what you’ll find on this fall’s education menu:

One Man’s Trash

James Drake’s exhibition, The Anatomy of Drawing and Space (Brain Trash), consists of 1,242 drawings that took the artist years to complete. Here he discusses the inspiration, the process, and the meaning of this large-scale installation currently on view at MCASD Downtown.

MCASD: While you have always drawn, you are equally known for your sculpture and photography. How does this project compare to your other work?
