During our trip to PAX East I took some time out to see the Think Pink exhibition at the MFA. This is a neat little (one-room) show focusing on the use of pink in fashion through time, with pieces from the 18th century to the present. It runs through May 26, 2014, and I highly recommend a visit. It is included in general admission to the MFA, one of my favorite art museums of all time.
I had to leave the camera with Mike at PAX, so I only have so-so pictures from my phone. But I assure you, the pieces are much more stunning in person.
