Art & Cinema
Two fantastic art museums are located within walking distance of Concord House: the Chazen Museum of Art, and the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA). The Chazen presents collections that range from ancient to modern, and offers free admission to all. MMoCA highlights four galleries with changing exhibitions featuring both established and emerging artists, and includes a rooftop sculpture garden.The UW campus is also home to two theaters: Cinematheque and the Marquee Theater at Union South. Cinematheque shows fine films meant to showcase the best in international cinema history. The Marquee shows modern, often independent, but sometimes mainstream, films. Both theaters boast free admission on a first-come, first-serve basis.
