MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, BOSTON — Speaking to a mob of reporters while walking down the museum’s front steps, sophomore Paula Monay (MCAS ‘19) confirmed the rumors that she had indeed spent her Sunday afternoon looking at some of the finest art Boston has to offer. “The Frida Khalo exhibition was especially riveting,” said Monay, noting that the museum’s curators did a fantastic job contextualizing Kahlo’s work within modernism and the zeitgeist of Mexico City in the early twentieth century.
“I’m thrilled with my decision to make the most of this beautiful Sunday afternoon and burst my bubble. While many of my peers were locked away in O’Neill, staring at their laptops like zombies of academia, I hopped on the T and went on a journey to feed my soul with the creativity of legends. The MFA serves a smorgasbord of artistic delicacies, from Picasso to Rembrandt to Hokusai, and I consider myself lucky to go to college in a town where these experiences are sitting at my fingertips—and for free with an Eagle ID? Are you kidding me? Wow! There’s something indescribable about an art museum that makes you feel alive.”
Monay then reportedly hopped back on the T and immediately began editing an Instagram of Danish artist Jeppe Hein’s Please…, a neon sign synonymous with the MFA.
