Saturday Street Style: Art in Boston

When: August 31, 2013

Where: Museum of Fine Arts and the Arts Festival in the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park

This past Saturday I took my friend Diana and cousin Alyssa to the Museum of Fine Arts. Neither of them had visited this museum. I love this museum but definitely do not visit it enough. I wanted to check out the Hippie Chic exhibition.

When we arrived we had lunch at the New American Café. I had delicious mushroom quesadillas and a glass of chardonnay.

After lunch we walked around the Art of the Americas. I always enjoy walking through this section. There are paintings by Copley, Sargent, and silver pieces created by Paul Revere.

We moved into the Art of Europe section to look at work done by some of my favorite artists, Monet, Degas, and Van Gogh.

On our way to the Hippie Chic exhibition we walked through a moving exhibit titled She Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab world.
