Day Art Tour: MFA Boston
Apr 25 all-day

Day Art Tours are organized by the Women’s Committee of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art.

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Visit the Museum of Fine Arts to view Matisse in the Studio, the first major international exhibition to examine the importance of Henri Matisse’s studio collection. Matisse, who revolutionized twentieth-century art, believed that a treasured group of objects was instrumental to his studio practice.

Enjoy an hour-long, docent-led tour of the objects, many on loan from private collections and publicly exhibited for the first time. Following the tour, you will have ample free time to explore the exhibition on your own, or visit other offerings such as Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross; New Women for a New Age: Japanese Beauties, 1890s-1930s; and Make Way for Ducklings: The Art of Robert McCloskey.

Lunch will be on your own. There are four dining options within the museum: Bravo, New American Café, Taste, and the Garden Cafeteria. Information on nearby restaurants will be provided for those who wish to venture outside.

Tickets: $85; $75 members. Includes transportation, admission, guided tour, and gratuities.
