The latest overnight party at the Museum of Fine Arts will feature a pair of special political guests, just in time for Election Day.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and GOP political consultant Eric Fehrnstrom will join Boston Globe political reporter James Pindell for a “Double Session” Q&A presentation on Friday night. The event is part of the museum’s #mfaNOW Overnight: State of the Party festivities, which includes free admission for guests all night long.

Albright, a Wellesley College alum who became the first woman to serve as Secretary of State under former President Bill Clinton, is scheduled to speak starting at 10 p.m. Fehrnstrom’s Q&A is set to begin at 10:50 p.m.

Tickets to the event will be available on a first-served basis starting at 9 p.m. in the Linde Family Wing Entrance.

In addition to the political discussions, the latest installment of the MFA’s overnight series includes live music, dancing, art demonstrations, lectures, performances, plus plenty of food and drinks for purchase. A late-night run will once again take place outside the Museum, while early risers will be treated to coffee and conversation as well as art making and story hour for kids.

Free, November 4 to September November 5, 9 p.m. to 9 a.m., Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave., mfa.org.
