This summer, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), is stepping up to the plate to celebrate the career of Red Sox icon, David Ortiz. A new installation of Ortiz’s World Series Championship rings, David Ortiz: King of the Diamond, will open on June 17 to kick off Father’s Day Weekend. Ortiz’s championship rings from 2004, 2007 and 2013 will be on display and his 2013 World Series MVP ring will be installed a week later, coinciding with the retirement of Ortiz’s number 34 at a Fenway Park ceremony on June 23. As part of the Big Papi celebrations that week, Museum visitors can contribute to the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, an organization committed to providing lifesaving heart surgeries for children in the Dominican Republic and helped countless others in New England, through a donation box available at the Museum until June 25. David Ortiz: King of the Diamond will be on view in the Museum’s Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art through Labor Day, September 4, 2017.
