This statue will be on display at Mass. MoCA in Izhar Patkin's exhibit, 'The Wandering Veil,' which opens Saturday, Dec. 7.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art's winter-into-spring season is approaching with gallery openings, discounted performance tickets, family programs and a documentary series.
 
The season starts at Mass MoCA with the opening of Izhar Patkin's exhibit, "The Wandering Veil," on Saturday, Dec. 7, with the reception scheduled for Jan. 8 from 3 to 5 p.m.
 
Communications Director Jodi Joseph announced the early-bird ticket special. Up until Dec. 31, tickets to any performance are 25 percent off.
 
Many performances are lined up for the season as well, including Phish co-founder and bassist Mike Gordon, set to play with his touring band on April 5 at the Hunter Center.
 
"For those of you who don't know who the band Phish is... is there anyone who doesn't know who Phish is?" asked Managing Director of Performing Arts Sue Killam.
 
"They're sort of a cultural icon right now, I feel like they replaced the [Grateful] Dead as the jam band audience experience."
 
Tickets for Gordon's show will be available Dec. 13.
 
Laura Thompson, the director of Kidspace and education, said Free Day will return on Saturday, Jan. 11, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. There will be ongoing art projects, activities and performances throughout the day.
 
"This should be a really fun day, we have lots of plans in store for that," Thompson said.
 
Children from around the county will get a chance to visit with their schools, thanks to a $148,050 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
 
"This season we have a lot of education programs, you'll be seeing a lot of schoolchildren coming through," Thompson said.
 
And when the children aren't in school, Kidspace will host children events, such as December Break for Art.
 
Thompson said the museum will also host adult-oriented programs, such as artist talks and Date Night.
 
Killum said Club B-10 will show documentaries each month throughout the winter-spring season, starting with "20 Feet From Stardom" on Jan. 30 at 7:30 p.m.
