MFA Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day with Free Open House
The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), will celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a day of free admissions and events. Family programming is offered throughout the day on Monday, January 19, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
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.
For the past 18 years, the MFA has celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day by offering free admission. In tribute to Dr. King, who advocated activism through non-violence, the MFA invites members of the community to explore the Museum and embrace the notion of expression through art.
Since its inception in 1997, nearly 100,000 visitors have enjoyed MLK Jr. Day programming and exhibitions featuring several influential African American artists, such as prominent muralist John Biggers, Boston-based artist Allan Rohan Crite, and Civil Rights-era photographer Ernest Withers.
