If you love the art of the 17th century Dutch 'golden age' come join MIT Historian Anne McCants for a guided tour of Class Distinctions: Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer. This special exhibit (which closes on January 18th and can be previewed here: http://www.mfa.org/exhibitions/class-distinctions) has been called 'a visual banquet' by the Boston Globe. Professor McCants will add to the pictorial feast her expertise on the economy and society of the Dutch Republic, putting the paintings and other material artifacts -- which in this exhibit have been arranged by social class -- into their full historical context. Meet at 1:00 inside MFA's Huntington Ave. Entrance. Students with MIT ID get in museum for free.
