The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is a grand cultural institution. Often thought of as stuffy or set in it ways, I believe the MFA is a true cultural Mecca with avant-garde film festivals, outdoor and indoor conferences, Friday night drinks and music among the art, and of course a truly beautiful collection of art. I urge everyone to go to MFA.org and check out the calendar of events. Most are very inexpensive one of a kind opportunities!
The art collections really have something for everyone…There is Ancient and Modern, there is photo and sculpture, there is a Rock Garden and outdoor sculpture. My Favorites are:
1)The Contemporary Wing featuring work by current artists.
2)The Impressionist room with some staggeringly beautiful Monet's
3)The Japanese Samurai collection with swords and kimonos
4)The Musical Instrument collection
5)The Black and white photography
The MFA is on the T's Green line, along the Fenway which is a lovely stretch of green space that borders various college campuses. (Northeastern campus, Boston University, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, MassArt, and more!!!).
