Come tour the Boston Public Library (BPL) in Copley Square, one of America's architectural treasures. Designed by McKim, Mead and White and completed in 1895, the magnificent Renaissance Revival building marries art with architecture. In addition to mosaics, wall paintings, and murals, you'll see features made of nearly 20 varieties of marble. View the murals by Pierre Puvis de Chauvannes, John Singer Sargent (currently being restored), and John Elliott. Also see the work of Augustus St. Gaudens, Federick MacMonnies, and Daniel Chester French, among others. Meet inside the Dartmouth St. entrance of the Boston Public Library at Copley Square.
