Museum of Modern Renaissance
So many art movements started in European cities - Rococo in Rome, the Vienna Secession, Pointillism in Paris - but Somerville is the birth of the Modern Renaissance. Before you dismiss the art, take a look at the awe-inspiring works. Splashes of color everywhere are formed into wall murals, stained glass, furniture, and upholstery. Hard to describe in words, this venue is exquisite, classy, and deserves to be recognized among world-class artists.
