As you may know, I am currently a Writing Fellow for the arts policy and infrastructure blog and virtual think tank Createquity. I am also a transplant Bostonian, living in the greater Boston area and working downtown in the city, so while I was safe and well during the events of the Boston Marathon bombing, they did strike close to home.
I wrote this piece about the several Boston museums that opened their doors for free one day that week. Since then, several other museums have decided to welcome specific groups, such as M.A. law enforcement officials, for free all month.
