ImageNestled on the corner of Huntington Avenue and Ruggles Street, The Museum of Fine Arts is home to some of the world’s most recognizable pieces of artwork. From the works of Monet to Warhol, the MFA is nothing less than delightful for the fellow art addict.

It is also home to some of fashion’s best exhibitions, such as “Think Pink,” the MFA’s newest exhibition. “Think Pink” celebrates the changing meanings associated with the color pink from the 18th century up until modern day. With pieces from world-renowned designers, such as Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta, this exhibit is nothing less than perfection.

The exhibit will be located in the Loring Gallery of the Museum of Fine Arts from Oct. 3, 2013 to May 26, 2014. The museum will also be illuminated in bright pink lighting in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month for the entire month of October.

This exhibit is a must-see for any art and fashion enthusiast that is interested in the progression of pink through the visual cultures of the world, and how it has formed the reputation of being the color of femininity and fashion.
