One of the largest art museums in the U.S., the original MFA opened its doors to the public on July 4, 1876, the nation’s centennial. Today the MFA is one of the most comprehensive art museums in the world; the collection encompasses nearly 500,000 works of art and receives over 1.1 million visitors annually. The building is a large scale example of neo-classical architecture. Its Fenway entrance is flanked by sculptures by Antonio Lopez Garcia called 'Day and Night' featuring two monumental (10’) baby heads.
