My suggestion is that we go to the "Quilts and Color" Exhibition. We'll meet at 7 pm, if you can make it.
A visual treat and an abundance of eye-popping color: celebrate the beauty and vibrancy of American quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy Collection "You will not see a more beautiful show anywhere in New England. What a bliss-out."—The Boston Globe
“Quilts and Color” celebrates the vibrant color palette and inventive design seen in the acclaimed Pilgrim/Roy Quilt Collection. The exhibition features nearly 60 distinctive quilts from the renowned collection and is the first to explore how, over five decades, trained artists Paul Pilgrim and Gerald Roy searched out and collected quilts with bold, eye-popping designs that echoed the work of mid-20th century Abstract Expressionist and Op Artists.
Let's explore the Contemporary Art Wing at the MFA. Wednesdays after 5 is free at the MFA. We'll repeat this on an-going basis to really take the time to see the many galleries in this new wing. Guests welcome. If you RSVP "yes" that means you will be attending. You can always change your RSVP if your plans change.
Contemporary art finds a dynamic new home at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, when the Museum unveils to the public the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art, located in the MFA’s dramatic I. M. Pei-designed building. The transformed wing features seven galleries introducing innovative approaches to contemporary art within the context of the Museum’s collections, offering new perspectives and encouraging connections between art of the past and present. Art is displayed throughout the wing, including in the Henry and Lois Foster Gallery, where the exhibition "Ellsworth Kelly: Wood Sculpture," the first museum survey of wood sculpture by the acclaimed artist Ellsworth Kelly, debuts September 18. And don't miss the 24-hour screenings of Christian Marclay's The Clock in Loring Gallery 276.
