Goings on at the MFA

by Betsy of Stonehouse Studio

One of the joys of not doing weekly shows during my 'off season' are regular visits to the MFA. Every year I purchase a $75 membership that allows me unlimited visits, a couple of tickets to their special exhibits and a 10% discount in the museum shop. They also have a great film series, lectures, art classes and even events for artsy singles. Strapped for cash? No worries, admission to the MFA is free on Wednesdays from 4pm-9:45pm!

The MFA is known worldwide for its fabulous collection of Asian art. Right now they have a couple of exhibits featuring Kyoto, Boston's sister city: Visions of Kyoto and Celebrating Kyoto. And I'm really looking forward to the upcoming Shōwa exhibit, newly acquired artworks depicting the art deco period of 1930's, a time of sweeping modernization and westernization in Japan.
