About the MFA
The original MFA opened its doors to the public on July 4, 1876, the nation’s centennial. Built in Copley Square, the MFA was then home to 5,600 works of art. Over the next several years, the collection and number of visitors grew exponentially, and in 1909 the Museum moved to its current home on Huntington Avenue. Today, the MFA is one of the most comprehensive art museums in the world; the collection encompasses nearly 450,000 works of art. We welcome more than one million visitors each year to experience art from ancient Egyptian to contemporary, special exhibitions, and innovative educational programs. The New MFA, Designed by the world-renowned Foster and Partners architects, comprises a new wing for Art of the Americas; renovated art of Europe galleries; improved conservation and education facilities; The Linde Family Wing devoted entirely to contemporary art; and a new, larger public space—the Shapiro Family Courtyard.
2. Recipe Sharing
Theme: Fresh Herbs
Fresh herbs flavor food. We all enjoy food, herbs and have recipes to share. This gathering is dedicated to bringing fresh herbs and the ingredients needed to make a recipe with the herbs. We will cook, learn, eat and enjoy the rewards of cooking with fresh herbs. To get some of your own recipes, using fresh herbs, visit freshherbs.com. Don’t know your herbs?
