What an achievement.
Congratulations to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
And, from a resident and member of the Boston arts community, a personal thank you to all the donors, both large and small.
Well, mostly to the large ones.
From the Globe:
The Museum of Fine Arts has reached its $500 million fund-raising goal, the largest sum for a campaign by an arts institution in Boston history.
At a board meeting announcing the milestone yesterday, the MFA disclosed key contributions it had received from major local figures in business and the arts.
Many members of our community have given multi-million dollar donations over the years, including many who have requested to remain anonymous. (The Globe, be damned.)
Puritan Boston wouldn’t have it any other way!
