Acquired Tastes: 200 Years of Collecting for the Boston Athenaeum has opened for public viewing. On display will be numerous books, sculptures, paintings, and other items acquired by the Athenaeum over the years, many of which are rarely seen by the public. I haven't seen the show yet but will give an in depth report after I do. The Boston Athenaeum is located at 10 1/2 Beacon Street in downtown Boston, near Boston Common and the Statehouse. Admission is free and the exhibition is open Monday through Friday, 9-5:30, and on Saturday from 9-4. The exhibition will run through 13 July 2007.
