Imagining a Palace with a Guest Artist | Today Only!
Join us in the Studio for a demonstration of chair caning, a method of weaving used in making furniture, and then make your way to the galleries to seek out elaborately decorated furniture in the collection.
Artists in the Studio are made possible by the Polly Thayer Starr Charitable Trust. Polly Thayer Starr (1904-2006) was an accomplished artist who captured the culture and whimsy of her native Boston with a unique combination of detail, emotion and curiosity.

Hands-on art-making activities are supported in part by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, the Josephine and Louise Crane Foundation, the Caleb C. and Julia W. Dula Educational & Charitable Foundation, and The Yawkey Foundation. The Museum receives operating support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
