Ellsworth Kelly, one of the world’s greatest living abstract artists, was in town yesterday for the opening of a show of his wood sculptures at the Museum of Fine Arts. While there, Kelly reminisced about his 18 months at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. He was living in Roxbury at the time, and spent many hours drawing local children. The drawings, he said, “are still in a drawer.”
