the mfa’s new wing

American Folk Art, Joyce and Edward Linde GalleryThe MFA, Boston’s premier art museum, received a glorious new wing for the Art of the Americas a handful of years ago.  What a borderland pleasure it is!  The old MFA, like much of Boston, was proper and stodgy.  The modern wing, and the newly enclosed courtyard attaching the buildings, enlivens the entire museum; how appropriate that the vibrant Art of the Americas was chosen to do so.

My dear Bostonian parents introduced me one afternoon, after lunch in the courtyard.  For this visit, I focused on American art.  [please hover over images for captions]
