History of Art and Architecture

Marina Tyquiengco Co-organized Programs at the MFA

In late June 2021, the MFA Boston will unveil the Garden for Boston project, two outdoor installations on the green spaces of the Museum’s main entrance by Roxbury-based artist Ekua Holmes and Aquinnah Wampanoag artist Elizabeth James-Perry. In anticipation of this exciting project, curators from the MFA, including Curatorial Assistant and HAA graduate student Marina Tyquiengco, and community partners have organized a series of three Zoom culminating in a conversation between the artists on Tuesday, June 22, 2021. This series will recognize Boston as a place of Native and Black histories and lived experiences through the expertise of artists, scholars, and thought leaders.
