Join us at our March 3 MFA Late Nites, the next event in our series connecting visitors to art, culture, and community. The MFA is open to the public for ticketed entry to the party from 8 pm to 2 am. The diverse event lineup features programming in partnership with local organizations, artists, and more—making the Shapiro Family Courtyard, and Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art buzz with activity. Guests can visit exhibitions like “Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics,” “(un)expected families,” and “Seeking Stillness,” explore the galleries, and engage in art making. There’s something for everyone, from dancing and DJs to pop-up performances, intriguing bites, and much, much more.

Watch this space for full schedule of events.
