Museum of Fine Arts Boston Announces Free Memorial Day Community Weekend May 25-27

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), will demonstrate its support of the City of Boston with three free days of art and family fun during Memorial Day Community Weekend—Saturday, May 25, through Monday, May 27. The event, called “Boston I Love,” will bring the community together to celebrate the spirit of the city in the wake of the attack at the Boston Marathon. Visitors from Boston and beyond will be able to enjoy special exhibitions, including the debut of three paintings lent to the MFA by New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in honor of the people of Boston. Additionally, an installation of quilt squares from around the world offering messages of love and peace will be displayed in the installation To Boston With Love. The weekend will also feature a
collaborative art-making activity in which visitors will create their own pictures to be added to an ever-expanding community collage at the MFA. Visitors will be able to contribute to The One Fund Boston at donation boxes located throughout the Museum. The Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. for each of the three days. The Memorial Day Community Weekend is generously supported by the Vance Wall Foundation and MFA Associates/MFA Senior Associates.
