Bostonians are flocking to the new wing for the Art of the Americas at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), which just opened this past November. Boston’s MFA is one of the top art museums in the world and is a must for visitors to Boston.
New Art of the America’s Wing transforms Boston Museum of Fine Arts
Now, with the new Art of the Americas Wing, the Boston MFA has been transformed into a more modern and dynamic venue, with the capacity for the “display of more than 5,000 works from the Museum‘s American collections.” In fact, The Art of the America’s Wing at the Boston MFA has “more than doubled” the number of art works available for the public to see.
The new wing at the Boston MFA “represents the most expansive initiative focused on American art and culture happening in the world today, broadening the definition to include works from North, Central, and South America that span the course of three millennia, up to the late 20th century”, according to press materials from the Boston MFA.
“With the opening of the new wing for the Art of the Americas, visitors will be able to appreciate the MFA‘s extraordinary collections in new and exciting ways. These beautifully designed spaces enrich the visitor experience and set a dramatic stage for the Museum‘s Art of the Americas collections in a unique setting—Boston—where much of this country‘s history took shape,” said Malcolm Rogers, Ann and Graham Gund Director of the Museum in press materials.
