Art is subjective, but we think we can objectively say that Massachusetts has the best art in the entire solar system. After all, it’s home to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, one of the world’s most impressive collections of fine art; Mass MoCA, the country’s most fertile site for large scale new art; and the “small but big” Worcester Art and Fitchburg Art Museums. Plus, there’s a whole museum of bad art, one that’s free if your name is Isabella, and the country’s oldest continuously operating art colony. Wake up your soul at the Jacob’s Pillow dance festival, catch yourself clapping inappropriately loud for the world famous Boston Symphony Orchestra or banging your head (in a good way) in the birthplace of hardcore punk. And don’t leave without experiencing some drama (also in a good way) at one of our amazing theaters, from the Berkshire theater scene and Worcester’s majestic Hanover Theatre to Boston’s storied theater district.
