The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, welcomes visitors to its annual Fall Open House on Columbus Day. Admission to all exhibitions and programs is free, including John Singer Sargent Watercolors and the Benin Kingdom Gallery, featuring art from the ancient African kingdom of Benin (in present-day Nigeria). Programming for all ages ranges from watercolor workshops and drawing in the galleries to performance art by Boston’s Dell Hamilton, created in response to the debate surrounding immigration in the United States. Special events include the opportunity to try a "Play Me, I'm Yours" piano, one of the 75 pianos located around Boston for free public use. Special performances include Berklee College of Music graduates Mmmmaven, who will demonstrate a cutting-edge music program inspired by the exhibition Hippie Chic, and more. Additionally, a short film program celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month and tours of the Museum’s collection will take place throughout the day. Mon., Oct. 14, 10 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. See website for times of individual performances, activities and workshops. Free. All ages. The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 465 Huntington Ave., Boston.
