Today I've got another series of photos from a recent visit to the MFA (Museum of Fine Arts) here in Boston. I shared a number of photos from the Making Modern exhibit many months ago. And then I think I mentioned either on the podcast or the vlog -- it's all starting to blend a bit -- that this exhibit is actually an ongoing semi-permanent thing. This means that the work displayed in these five galleries does change a bit from time-to-time.
This is the stuff that caught my eye this time through:
I believe that it's collaborative art made by kids. I just loved the colorful letters!
Finally, file these two photos under miscellaneous fun facts.
This very famous painting has always been one of my favorites, but it hasn't always been displayed on this wall with those vases. In fact, I wondered why it was displayed with those vases -- seemed so oddly out of place in a gallery full of paintings -- until someone pointed out that I am an idiot. Those are the vases (or similar to) the ones in the painting. Lightbulb moment.
I had a conversation with two people and said, let's meet near the chapel in the MFA. They thought I meant this one. I thought they meant the one I shared in this post. Ooops!
I actually really like the fact that the MFA is large enough and labyrinthian enough to constantly surprise me!
You can expect more photos from the MFA, by the way. Because I'm headed there today!
Thanks for stopping by!
