The curated Masterpiece Trail ranges from world-renowned works to hidden gems, all of them housed in 24 art galleries and museums throughout the Bay State.

MOTT Executive Director Francois Nivaud said the Trail enables visitors to “continue their journey to other museums and see an unparalleled collection of artwork from world-renowned artists – housed right here in Massachusetts.”

The release of the Masterpiece Trail coincides with ArtWeek MA, taking place from April 27-May 6.
