There’s a very cultured reason to play hooky on Monday—the Harvard Art Museums are waiving admission fees for the day.

It’s been a year since the museums opened to the public after their renovations and expansion. The $350 million overhaul put Harvard’s three art museums—the Fogg, the Busch-Reisinger, and the Arthur M. Sackler—under a single roof for the first time. Free admission celebrates their one-year anniversary since the grand opening on November 16, 2014.

Exhibitions to check out include “Corita Kent and the Language of Pop,” art by the activist and Catholic nun behind the “Rainbow Tank” in Dorchester, “European and American Pop Art, 1955-1975,” featuring works by some of the central figures in the history of pop art, and “A History of Photography,” which addresses key moments and issues in the history of photographs.
