In partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Bank of America is proud to sponsor Fashioned by Sargent, which offers a unique look at the use of fashion by John Singer Sargent, how the artist used it to style the appearance of his portrait subjects and what it said about the times in which they lived.
The MFA has been a longtime partner of Bank of America. Over the years, we have sponsored numerous exhibitions, including the recent Obama Portraits Tour, LIFE Magazine and The Power of Photography, Monet and Boston: Lasting Impression, Women Take the Floor, and Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation. We funded the conservation of two Vincent van Gogh paintings through the Bank of America Art Conservation Project in 2018, and several years ago we helped to fund the redesign of the Museum’s entrance on Huntington Avenue. As Museums on Us, our free admission program for cardholders, enters its 23rd year, the MFA remains a treasured member.
Miceal Chamberlain, President, Bank of America Massachusetts, said, “Bank of America has been steadfast in our support of the arts, believing they are a unifying force that promotes human connections and cultural understanding. Our support for the MFA through the years – including its newest exhibit, Fashioned by Sargent – is core to our commitment to responsible growth and sharing our success in the communities we serve.”
At Bank of America, we believe in the power of the arts to help economies thrive, enrich societies and have a positive impact on the lives of our clients, employees and neighbors. That’s why we support more than 2,000 nonprofit cultural institutions each year.
We hope that you enjoy Fashioned by Sargent and all that the MFA has to offer.
