CoSo Outings: MFA Visit

Making our way to the MFA entrance.

As this summer comes to a close, we remain quite busy here at the Copley Society.  With the planning for our upcoming photography show, final preparations for the opening of our newest off-site exhibition, and an overdue clean-out of our inventory closets on the agenda these past few weeks, yesterday was the perfect day for our staff and interns to take a break.  And what better way to relax than to take a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts?

We began in the Chihuly glass exhibit, then made our way to the American wing, enjoyed a lovely lunch in the New American Café, and finished our visit in the museum's first-ever jewelry gallery "Jewels, Gems, and Treasures: Ancient to Modern."  Each piece left us wide-eyed and eager to see what the next room held - from furniture and paintings, sculptures and jewelry, to photographs and figurines.

And though we enjoyed our trip as a whole, we did have a few favorites...    

Amusing the staff and other visitors.

...including The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit by John Singer Sargent, which our interns couldn't help but impersonate. We can't wait to go back!
