Every Wednesday after 4pm the Museum of Fine Arts lets all us penniless people inside for FREE and there just so happens to be some sick talks, tours and happenings coinciding each week.
July is also your last chance to catch a couple choice exhibits happening there. Including their exhibit Quilts and Color which is packed with deceptively psychedelic quilts hailing from the 19th and 20th centuries generously on display thanks to the Pilgrim/Roy collection. This good stuff ends on 7/27.
\ Wednesday, 7/30 //
6,-7pm GALLERY TALK: Genius of Rickenbacker: Early Electric Instruments @Musical Instruments Gallery (103) Berklee faculty members Mimi Rabson and Norman Zocher explain the history, design and even demo a 1936 electric violin, a 1950 BD-model lap-steel guitar and a 1940 “Frying Pan” lap steel guitar. Cool.
6-9pm Drawing in the Galleries If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at sketching, EVERY WEEK the MFA is providing you with the tools, the space, a subject and even an instructor to give it a shot! Live (clothed) models or a museum object will be provided as your subject. This is open to amateurs and pros alike. Seriously, you’ve got nothing to lose here!
6:15pm GALLERY TOUR: Highlights of the Museum Collections Head to the Sharf Visitor Center and take an hourlong walkthrough of the MFA’s favorites works.
