With all the history and beauty that art museums have to offer, it can sometimes be hard to understand such a wide range of masterpieces without a degree in art history. Luckily, My Art Boston sends you into museums with someone who does have one. Founder Christina McCollum leads private tours around the Museum of Fine Arts, heightening the experience with knowledge from her graduate degree in art history and B.A. in Fine Art from New York University. Her tours are more than just lectures on the artists and their styles, though. She creates custom experiences designed to reflect her clients’ favorite works and periods. Tours might explore modern, American, or impressionist art, or weave through the highlights of the Asian art wing. Or, on family outings, groups can dissect the paintings and sculptures that get kids excited about art with scavenger hunts or attempts to bring the museum’s subjects to life.
