The MFA has e-mailed patrons and visitors that it's cancelling all of its programs and events through Aug. 31, due to Covid-19 concerns.
Makeeba McCreary, the museum's chief of learning and community engagement, wrote:
Due to ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all of the Museum’s events and programs through August 31, 2020. We came to this decision with great care - in consultation with community and cultural partners, performers, and city officials - to put the safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors first. Where feasible, we are rescheduling programs for the future.
If you purchased tickets to any upcoming MFA event, you will receive a follow-up e-mail with instructions on how to request a refund or donate a portion of the value of your tickets to the MFA Fund. As the Museum weathers this unprecedented closure, a gift in any amount helps us resume outstanding programs in the fall to share art with Boston’s students, families, and the creative community.
