7-9. When you love a BMA exhibit so much you want to take it home

If you were as in awe with Jacob Lawrence the American Struggle, Ways of Seeing or An Epic of Earth and Water: Clare Leighton and the “New England Industries” Series as we were, you’ll want to explore prints and books related to the exhibits.
