Enjoy a breath of fresh air and encounter eye-catching, large-scale works of contemporary art on the museum’s long-awaited Art Terrace.

Plan Your Visit

Be the first to experience the city’s largest rooftop art terrace: an open-air space for gatherings, performances, and artworks. Members are invited to attend special preview hours before it officially opens to the public this fall: Saturday, Aug. 19 through Monday, Aug. 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Art Terrace features large-scale contemporary sculptures and commissioned installations including Taotie (2022) by Kongkee (b. 1977, active Hong Kong and London), Breast Stupa Topiary (2013/2019) by Pinaree Sanpitak (Thai, b. 1961), and Luminous Ground (2018/2020) by Ala Ebtekar (b. 1978, active San Francisco and Tehran). 

Reserve a General Admission ticket to enjoy all of the museum during your visit. No additional ticket is needed to view the Art Terrace.
