Summer Solstice Member Opening with Artist Christian Sampson

We welcome MFA Members to join us for a Summer Solstice Celebration from 9–10 am as we unveil the second installation of Tempus volat, hora fugit by Christian Sampson. Meet the artist, enjoy coffee and pastries from Café Clementine, and marvel at the beautiful play on light and color that will fill the MFA Conservatory. 

This second installation of Tempus volat, hora fugit brings additional color to the Conservatory, as Sampson focuses not just on the wall of water-facing east windows, but grows his artwork to encompass windows on the south and west sides of the buildings, allowing for a geometric flooding of colored light from multiple angles. The Summer Solstice marks the first astronomical day of summer in Earth’s northern hemisphere. It is the longest day of the year, when the sun reaches its highest altitude. Sampson has focused on the clerestory windows on the south side of the Conservatory, drawing the eye to the top reaches of the Museum’s architecture.

A special Summer Solstice Yoga Session will be held from 8-9 am, immediately followed by this MFA Member program.
