MFA gets $10 million gift, gives museum entrance confusing new name

The Boston financial firm State Street Corporation has donated $10 million to Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the two institutions announced today. The gift is “the largest corporate donation in the museum’s history,” according to a joint press release. As thanks, the museum will rename its Fenway entrance, closed since the early 1980s, as the “State Street Fenway Entrance” when those doors reopen to the public in the spring 2008 (if all goes according to schedule).
