Although we definitely don’t only focus on art museums on this blog… what can I say, the next few weeks are particularly great opportunities to see five amazing and very different shows! From hats to thousands of silicon-casts of fingers forming a prayer rug (not joking!), it’s a good week to be in the Boston area!

  • Tuesday January 29, 6-8 p.m. Opening Receptions at MassArt’s Bakalar & Paine Galleries for their new shows, Passing Time and Graphic Advocacy.
