The grant supports the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s Life in Ancient Greece gallery, which will place significant works of ancient art into a state of the art 2,075-square foot gallery. This new permanent space will display highlights from the museum’s rich collection of ancient art in an innovative and approachable manner. The renovation will bring a much needed update to the gallery’s systems and interpretations allowing a broad range of museumgoers the opportunity to explore this rich collection.  

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), is one of the world’s great encyclopedic museums with nearly 85,000 objects in its Art of the Ancient World collection and over 1.1 million visitors in 2014.
