MFA for the Holidays
December 2 - December 6, 2009
Make the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), part of your holiday tradition with MFA for the Holidays, featuring free events and activities from Wednesday, December 2, through Sunday, December 6 (children 17 and under are always admitted free). Musical performances range from a concert by the Boston Children’s Chorus to the Bob Christopherson Holiday Jazz Trio, as well as seasonal music by local college a cappella groups. MFA for the Holidays also includes book readings and signings by popular local authors and the opportunity for children to receive free books (hundreds of books will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis). Catie Copley, the friendly black lab featured in the book Catie Copley by Deborah Kovacs, will make a special appearance when her book is read and is available for “pawtographs.” Visitors can also marvel at a gingerbread replica of Copley Square (the original site of the Museum of Fine Arts), created by chefs from North Shore Community College. Gifts for the holidays are available in the MFA Bookstore and Shop, where members receive a 20% discount.
