MFA for Educators

Engage your students with the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to illustrate themes and concepts in any discipline.

What Is Art?

The Museum of Fine Arts houses a variety of varying objects. For example, some were intended to be in a museum, some we made to be used in a home, some were created to be used in religious ceremonies or houses of worship. There are many different types of objects made with varying intentions in the MFA. Are all of these objects art? Are there any problems with using work made with a specific purpose in mind in a museum exhibit?
