Boston Athenaeum Art Exhibition

The Boston Athenaeum has a wonderful new exhibit of items from their own collection. They have extensive art holdings of which only a tiny fraction is on view at any one time. To celebrate the bicentennial of the institution a truly excellent show has been mounted. Included are a nice John Singer Sargent, Gilbert Stuarts, a statue by Horatio Greenough, documents, etc. It really is a must see, and I have never felt that way before about an exhibit at the Boston Athenaeum. It is all located on the first floor, which is open to the public without charge.
