An Abundance of Cultural AttractionsApr 13, 2020 Blog Neoscape
Boston-area cultural institutions are currently providing virtual tours and remote access to exclusive resources, offering online riches to those who want to begin a self-paced education in culture, natural history, and art. Available day or night, these online portals are readily accessible, so people living in the luxury Boston residences at 100 Shawmut can enjoy them at their leisure.
The Museum of Fine Arts has opened up a vast video library, allowing online visitors to take a virtual tour of exhibitions like Ancient Nubia Now, an exploration of Nubia’s history and artistic achievements that reinvigorates discussion about its modern relevance, or 2019’s Gender Bending Fashion, which challenges the rigid binary modes of a century’s worth of fashion. MFA conservators recount their work in Conservation Stories, while contemporary artists discuss their recent work and the processes involved in its creation in Conversations with Artists. All of this and so much more await online visitors at www.mfa.org.
Although the libraries may be closed, ebooks are still online and available for checkout. The Boston Public Library puts over 1.3 million titles at the public’s fingertips, and each can be accessed from home via www.bpl.org. The library also allows for streaming and downloading of movies and television shows. Music lovers can access titles and information about their favorite artists, while theater-goers will be happy to find resources for seeing “live” performances online or in recorded formats. Add to that the blogs, special digitized collections, and so much more, and it’s easy to get lost in BPL’s online “stacks” for an entire day—or more.
Regardless of what’s happening on land, the sea life at the New England Aquarium is still active and available for a virtual visit. At www.neaq.org, aquarium visitors can indulge in virtual activities ranging from attending feedings and observing animals to learning about ongoing research, and they can also participate in at-home initiatives like shark tracking and tidepool aerobics.
The Museum of Fine Arts, the Boston Public Library, and the New England Aquarium invite everyone to log on and discover something new or simply have some fun.
