The art museums at Harvard are better, in my opinion, than Boston’s august *Museum of Fine Arts… and a ticket to all three is half the $17 price-tag of the big museum. The last image is from the current show at the Sackler, Gods in Color: Painted Sculpture of Classical Antiquity, on view through January 20, 2008, which is the most comprehensive and educational grouping of painted reproductions of ancient sculpture I’ve seen.

* I’m holding out hope for the “new” MFA.
