To Boston With Love

People from all over the country (and the world) have poured out a ton of support to our city over the last month and a half. A gesture of support that you can see yourself is “To Boston With Love,” an installation of more than 1600 hand-sewn flags strung across the courtyard at the MFA. A grass roots effort, it actually was conceived in Vancouver, and includes patches created by quilters from nearly every state in the US and from countries around the world. They convey inspirational messages of love, peace, and hope and some hometown icons, like our “B” of the Boston Red Sox logo, the Citgo sign (a personal favorite) and Zakim Bridge, the Boston Marathon, and “Boston Strong.” It’s a great time to check out the inspirational exhibit, and snap some photos to add to our Flickr pool.
