10 am–5 pm
Free admission for all
Spend your Memorial Day at the Museum and enjoy exhibitions and programs for and by visitors of all ages. Don’t miss “Megacities Asia.” “Megacities Asia” featuring works by 11 artists who explore global issues of urbanization, consumption, and sustainability—and join local artists and students who interpret and explore Boston’s urban reality.
Drop in on a range of hands-on art-making activities, tour the galleries with trained experts, and meet artists from ArtLifting who have created original works of art in response to “Megacities” and its themes of urban development, migration, consumption, and sustainability.
Don’t miss other special exhibitions: “#techstyle,” “Visiting Masterpieces: Pairing Picasso,” and “The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris.”
