Dear Friends,

There is much to see and experience at the MFA.

Outstanding new displays include a gallery devoted to the Museum’s luminous collection of Monets. In adjacent galleries, 19th-century French canvases are arranged in thought-provoking groupings and themes including Impressionist plein air paintings and scenes of urban life and leisure.

Strong exhibitions are on view right now—Picasso, Lawren Harris, technology and fashion, contemporary Asian art exploring the issues of urban expansion in immersive installations.

The conversation on cities and art continues with The City Talks free forums and a talk with artist Jeon Yongseok of the flyingCity collective.

It will be a stimulating summer in the city with many voices contributing. I hope yours will be one of them—we want to hear from you!
