"To Boston With Love," an installation of more than 1700 hand-sewn flags strung across the Shapiro Family Courtyard returns to the MFA on the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon tragedy. The flags were created by quilters from nearly every state in the US and from countries around the world in tribute to the city. The flags convey inspirational messages of hope, evoke symbols of love and peace, and highlight iconic Boston images-the familiar "B" of the Boston Red Sox logo, the Citgo sign, Zakim Bridge, the city's skyline, and "Boston Strong."

The project was a grass-roots effort conceived by Berene Campbell of Vancouver, Canada, and organized locally by Amy Friend of West Newbury.
