Tuesday mornings April 8- May 6 (see Morning sessions below)

Thursday evenings April 10- May 8 (see Evening sessions below)

  

Explore the magical world of color through the eyes of artists, collectors, curators, and musicians. How does color fuel our actions and emotions? Why does a certain shade of pink look so vibrant next to different hues of blue? How did color influence some of the greatest cultural legends from Debussy to Coltrane? Inspired by the MFA’s Season of Color and the exhibitions “Think Pink” now on view, and “Quilts and Color: The Pilgrim/Roy Collection” opening in April.
