Blog / MFA all the way

Julie and I have spent two very productive days at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. On the first day we spent at least 90 minutes in the El Greco to Velazquez exhibition soaking it all in and commenting on how beautiful the works are. I was partiularly impressed by the polychrome sculptures…the photos really cannot do them justice.

On day one we got the 3-5th grade school tour outline fleshed out and yesterday we focused on the High School tour. As we stood in front of the still-lifes chatting and writing, a woman asked us what we were working on. We told her that we were writing the school program for our museum, and she then introduced herself…it was Ronni Baer, co-curator of the exhibition! We were pleasantly surprised to meet her, since she was supposed to be on vacation…she *was* on vacation, but took her day off to show her aunt around the exhibition. Just like museum-folk to come to the museum on their day off.

Later that day, we spent some time in the MFA bookstore and were very happy to see not one, but two Nasher catalogs on their “New Arrivals” display: “Birth of the Cool” and “Street Level.”

We are headed to the Institute of Contemporary Art this morning to see the installation of “Street Level.” The Nasher has taken over the Boston art scene:)
