In 2005, the MFA broke ground for its new Art of the Americas wing. This $345 million project was in the final phase of construction when we took these photos in August. Tomorrow, the MFA will have a dedication ceremony to mark the completion of this new wing. RainyDayMagazine will be there to bring you a FirstLook at this beautiful new space.
This ambitious project was designed by Foster+Partners (London). The new wing will have four floors and 53 new galleries. The entrance to the galleries will be through the Shapiro Family Courtyard, an airy light-filled glass-encased space. The hope is that the Courtyard will become a dynamic gathering place for MFA visitors, and a venue for special events in Boston.
The Art of the Americas Wing will open to the general public on November 20th, and admission will be free on that day. RainyDayMagazine will have a FirstLook tomorrow of the new wing. Mark your calendar for Saturday the 20th of November to go and check out this awesome new additon to the MFA. You WILL be amazed.
