The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston will soon allow you to virtually tour its new “Writing the Future: Jean-Michel Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation” exhibition. The installation was initially slated to open April 5, but has been postponed in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

“’Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation’ tells the story of artists who overcame great barriers to bring the world entirely new forms of cultural expression,” MFA Boston said in a statement. “Now more than ever, it is an exhibition that is urgently needed—one that promises to bring our museums and communities of all ages and backgrounds together at a moment in which new modes of access to art, culture, and ideas will pave the way to our shared future.”

“Writing the Future: Jean-Michel Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation” features previously unseen works by Keith Haring, Futura, and RAMMELLZEE, among others, in addition to Jean-Michel Basquiat. You can learn more about the exhibition, and stay up to date on the virtual opening, here.

For similar viewing, Google Arts and Culture has compiled a list of more than 500 museums and galleries that you can currently visit virtually, a feature that is especially useful while we all continue to practice social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

The homepage highlights some of the more popular establishments such as the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Van Gogh Museum, Musée d'Orsay, and Tate Britain. The entire list can also be navigated alphabetically.

When you click on one of the museums or galleries, you will be rewarded with photos from various collections, while select locations allow you to take a virtual tour. This service offers up some much-needed culture in between binging your favorite Netflix programs and playing your favorite video games.
