MFA expands student connection through new programs

Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, or MFA, is implementing a number of programs this fall designed to deepen the surrounding student community’s connection with the museum. These programs — which include expanded grants for free bus travel for students, increased accessibility to the museum’s “Ancient Nubia Now” exhibit and increased paid opportunities for high school and college students — are intended to connect Boston’s residents to art through an educational lens.
Through this initiative, the MFA is offering free access to students in Boston and Lawrence public schools and K-12 teachers across New England. Additionally, the MFA is providing funding assistance to New England schools to allow them to bring student groups to the museum.
