Here’s a treasure you may not be aware of: The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum generously offers free downloads of recordings of classical music performed live in the museum’s Tapestry room.
And speaking of treasures, don’t forget to be on the lookout for the stolen 12 missing works of art from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. You never know where stolen art will turn up. In fact, yesterday it was reported that a stolen Norman Rockwell painting titled Russian Schoolroom was found in the private collection of Steven Spielberg.
