Members: Free | Visitors: Free

Join the Boston Athenæum’s curators and director of education for a community conversation on the reinstallation of the BA's special collections. The Terra Foundation for American Art generously awarded the library a grant to re-envision its collections by bringing forward a diverse selection of artworks, including more work by and of women and people of color, to tell a broader story about US history and the history of art.

Learn about the project and share your thoughts, contribute ideas, and help shape the direction of the installation. Please note, space is limited to allow for social distancing.

In appreciation of your participation, you will receive a voucher for you and a guest to return to the BA for a docent-led Art & Architecture Tour.

If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to share your ideas with us, please email our curators at
