Join us for a week-long community art project on the front lawn of the MFA. Participants can channel their inner artist, and side-by-side we will create signs reflecting our personal views on the impact walls and barriers have in our everyday lives. Your sign will then be displayed on the MFA lawn for all to see and enjoy.

Over the course of this week, museum visitors and downtown pedestrians will contemplate the themes of this profound work: hope, isolation, identity, and navigation.

To receive and create your free sign, please visit our sign station inside the museum. On display from Jan. 24 – 30.

This program is generously sponsored by the Art Bridges Foundation
