CANCER: June 18-24


 Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts has a collection of Japanese art that’s never on display. It has 6,600 wood-block prints created by artists of the ukiyo-e school, also known as “pictures of the floating world,” some more than 300 years old. They’re tucked in drawers, hidden from the light, to keep their vibrant colors from fading. They’re well-preserved but rarely seen. Anything about you like that? Do you keep parts of you secret, protecting them from what might happen if you show them to the world? It’s time to change that. (Thanks to Molly Oldfield’s The Secret Museum for the info here.)
