The Museum of Fine Arts ("MFA") opened on July 4, 1876. It was originally located in Boston's Copley Square and moved to its current location on Huntington Avenue in 1909. It is one of largest art museums in the world, with over 400,000 works of art. Both contemporary and classic artists are represented, along with numerous special exhibits that change several times a year.
The MFA's current location on Huntington Avenue was chosen. The original building at the current location was designed by architect Guy Lowell, who created a design that could be added upon as the needs of the MFA grew. The first section of was completed in 1909; it is the part of the building that now faces Huntington Avenue, and features a grand rotunda and exhibition galleries.
P.S. - No more cheesy movie lines for my entry titles - two is enough! Do you recognize this line? It is from one of my favorite movies, which was filmed in one of my favorite places, Beaufort, SC!
