The Museum of Fine Arts hosted their third #mfaNOW overnight party on Friday evening — inviting attendees to spend the entire evening in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art. The free event allows guests to explore the wing's vast collection — including the trippy fantastic "UH-OH: Frances Stark 1991–2015" and Christian Marclay's 24-hour film "The Clock" — while enjoying multiple dance floors, guest speakers, an evening workout with Heartbreak Hill Running Company, food trucks and interactive DIY art opportunities. The "State of the Party" evening featured a chat with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Boston Globe political reporterJames Pindell.

The fourth — and final — totally free #mfaNOW overnight party (appropriately deemed "Last Call") will kick off Sat., Dec. 9 at 9 p.m.
