Explore: Alex Katz Prints At The Museum Of Fine Arts

Back in February my parents gifted me a membership to the Museum of Fine Arts. For the last two years I had been borrowing their membership card to go to all the exhibits that interested me and finally they decided they'd like me to have my own. Thank you, parents!

Starting in the spring, the museum began advertising their summer exhibit, Alex Katz Prints. The tag line for the marketing campaign is, "MFA Summer. No SPF Required" and that tag line appears with this photo from the exhibit:

This is a genius marketing campaign. I've seen the banners all around downtown Boston and each time I see one, it makes me want to rush to the exhibit. The vibrant colors draw you in and the look of that blue background makes you feel like you could just dip your toe into a pool or an ocean.

This Saturday I went to the museum to see the prints up close and personal. The exhibit is in the gallery beneath the New American Cafe and the Dale Chihuly green icicle.

Alex Katz's prints are mostly portraits, the majority of which are of his wife Ada. Ada is the light of his life and his greatest artistic muse. He loves her so much that he can't help but to continue to try and recreate her. How romantic is that?

I really loved this panoramic style portrait of a woman on a beach wearing a bright red hat and a large pair of sunglasses:

My absolute favorite print was of a woman wearing a black floppy hat and glamorous black sunglasses set against a mustard yellow background. I want this for my place!

In addition to the brightly colored portraits, Alex Katz also has prints inspired by nature. The last two rooms of the exhibit are all prints inspired by time he spent in Maine. There is a specific set of three prints called "Twilight" that was breathtaking.

The next time the temperature skyrockets and you're in search of air conditioning, head to the museum and wander through Alex Katz Prints. The exhibit runs through July 29th.

Have you been to the exhibit? Which piece was your favorite?
