Some MFA Wanderings

January 21, 2015

Dear Reader,

On our Monday holiday (I hope you had it off too) I decided to take a long walk from my apartment to the MFA. I’ve become familiar enough with the layout and the content that I can flit from favorite to favorite, meandering easily throughout the rooms. It was Free Day at the MFA and there was an actual line out the door to get a free ticket. I get in for free anyway as a student in the Boston area, so this was not a great day to go. Everyone and their small child was there touching the Egyptian hieroglyphs and setting off alarm after alarm. But it is the MFA. If you like going there, even a million people crowding around the naked Impressionist butt painting can’t really ruin the fun. So to include you in that day I took a bunch of pictures of my favorites. If you want to follow the way I went around, start in the Sargent gallery and work your way through the American section, through the the European, into the Ancient Greek and Roman, back into the great big hall, into Impressionism, then Modern, then bookstore for some postcards, then home. Pick up some Panera before you catch the D line home because there is nothing like Panera mac and cheese after a long day of wandering through galleries.Some MFA Wanderings- The Person I Am TonightMy favorite MFA lady- who I swear looks like someone alive currently.
