Gift boosts MFA’s contemporary stock

A gift from art collector Daphne Farago will dramatically upgrade the Museum of Fine Arts’s holdings of contemporary glass and craft, the latest effort by the MFA to strengthen a once-neglected area of the collection.

The 161 works coming from Farago range from rare, century-old pottery to newer works by artists such as Dale Chihuly, Sam Maloof, and Tom Patti. This is the third major gift of art from Farago and her late husband, Peter, whose contributions have totalled $2.5 million to $5 million in art and money over the years.
