The Arts

Although the popular image of early New Englanders and their Puritan values of thrift and sobriety is a somber and spartan one, colonial Boston boasted sparkling displays of affluence, from elaborate chocolate pots to shiny satin dresses with the finest imported lace. Join MFA lead educator, Wendy Dodek on a tour through the Art of the Americas Wing and explore some of the finest examples of luxury goods in colonial Boston.
