I joined thousands of others today at the Museum of Fine Arts to see the new Art of the Americas Wing. It’s a stunning, modern, four-story addition filled with classic paintings and sculptures as well as abstract and modern pieces. Plus Indian artifacts, silver goblets and bowls, kicking gold jewelry and stunning furniture. Just amazing. The exhibit would make any American proud.
Loved the Georgia O’Keefe and Thomas Cole paintings. And I enjoyed seeing the Gilbert Stuart portraits of John Adams and John Quincy Adams (my Quincy homies). The museum also has a new, glassed-in dining area just outside the new wing that’s surrounded by a lovely shrub and groundcover garden with two statues… I’ll call next week to find out what they planted in this patch of earth … Overall, a big “thumbs up” to the MFA for a classy addition to showcase these timeless works of art… And letting the public in for free was a bonus!
