I don’t know about you, but I’ve noticed a little lift in my spirits now that the warm weather is actually on the horizon. But even on a cold rainy April day, I’ve found a way to put a spring in my step. All it takes is an Art Injection!
Sure the crocuses may be in bloom but when I visit the MFA I can experience Monet’s WaterLilly’s AND Japanese Gardens. One of their latest exhibits: Mad on Color: Paintings of Nineteenth-century Venice, features works by Renoir and Monet, among others — and explores the influence of Venice’s unique combination of water and light on Impressionist painters.
If something more modern is your style, then pop on over to the Institute of Contemporary art and check out Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand — through August 16th. Fairey is one of today’s best known and most influential street artists – remember that famous Obama “Hope” poster? Fairey emerged from the skateboarding scene and Supply and Demand is his first art museum exhibition.
Or maybe the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is more your cup of tea. Three floors of galleries surround a garden courtyard, blooming with life in all seasons. Every third Thursday through June you can experience After Hours – live music, art, conversation, cocktails and more in an inviting atmosphere. Each month brings something different.
If you’d rather treat your ears to a good time, then check out the South Shore Music Circus. This summer brings feel good groups like The Beach Boys and The B-52’s, as well as KC and the Sunshine Band.
So when the weather – or just life – gets you down. Lift your spirits with an Art Injection!
