Museum of Fine Arts Boston will be free Memorial Day weekend

MFA Boston Strong

To honor the community spirit of the city of Boston the Museum of Fine Arts is waving admission fees for Memorial Day weekend May 25th, 26th & 27th.

In an outpouring of support for Boston and the tragedy of the Marathon events New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is lending the MFA three exquisit paintings. Visitors can view “Northeaster” by Winslow Homer, “Lachrymae” by Frederic, Lord Leighton and Edouard Manet’s “The Manet Family in Their Garden at Argenteuil” on the second floor of the MFA’s Art of the Americans Wing.

Also on view will be hundreds of quilt squares from around the world that make up the exhibit “To Boston with Love”. These will be strung across the Shapiro Family Courtyard. Staff members will be on hand to encourage visitors to create their own works of art in the Linde Family Wing. These will become parts of a growing collage that will be on display all weekend.
