Mon. Jan. 21
The Museum of Fine Arts always does something neat on Monday holidays. That is, they open the place to the public at no charge. This means you have (probably) a day off and no excuse not to expose yourself to culture. There's no football on TV. Nope, today's a day to learn, explore, grow … all that good stuff. And since it's Monday January 21, it's Martin Luther King Jr. Day, maybe a day to honor Dr. King and not go shopping, and check out the 5000 new works up at the new MFA wing. There's a "Community Arts Initiative" going on all day. Story hour is at 10:30 AM. At 11:30 Am and 2 PM, you may want to check Berklee College of Music presentation, by Larry Watson. Spoken word and music 2:30-4 PM. Hands-on artmaking all day.
