The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a free open house on Monday, January 20, 2014, from 10 am to 4:45 pm. Underwritten by The Citizens Bank Foundation for the 11th consecutive year, the day of family-friendly activities will include a story hour focused on Dr. King, art-making activities for kids of all ages and special art tours and talks in the galleries.
Outside the Museum, a temporary installation of Amalia Pica’s Now Speak! lectern will host performances by local leaders, community advocates and members of the Teen Arts Council, who will read excerpts of historically significant speeches. Inside, visitors can enjoy the recently opened exhibition Samba Spirit: Modern Afro Brazilian Art––which celebrates 20th-century Brazilian artists of African descent.
