Art of the Americas

On Friday a new wing of the Museum of Fine Arts was unveiled--the Art of the Americas Wing. The construction and furnishing of the wing cost $504 million! It is truly a magnificent building! The wing includes 53 galleries where you can see John Singer Sargent's "The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit" and other works in the Sargent Gallery.

There will be 5,000 works of American art displayed once all the galleries are completed!

The Wing will open to the general public on November 20, so book the library's museum pass now. The pass is provided through the generosity of the Friends of the Library of Windham.
