The Museum of Fine Arts will display love for Boston during three free days in late May. The Memorial Day weekend events are being held in support for the city after the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

The museum will hold an exhibition called "Boston I Love," which will provide art lent by New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Met's art director and CEO, Thomas Campbell, reached out to the MFA and chose three paintings to be displayed in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Visitors will also have the chance to contribute to a collage called "Boston I Love," featuring art made during those three days.

In addition, quilt makers from Brazil to Japan created quilt squares with messages of love and support for Boston. The quilt squares will be linked together and on display at the museum. Have a quilt of your own you'd like to share? Follow the directions here.

Will you attend the MFA's commemorative exhibitions? Have you been to events to support The One Fund? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
