Dream come true at Boston museum for terminally ill Weymouth painter

WEYMOUTH – Donny Jo Prevost never expected to see his self-portrait hanging in the Museum of Fine Arts, but there it was, along with nine of his other paintings. The experience was surreal, like a dream – except that it was a dream come true.

Prevost, 63, the former lead singer for a popular local band, is the first artist to exhibit at the MFA through The Dream Foundation, which grants wishes to adults with terminal illnesses.

Earlier this week, he and his wife, Theresa, saw the exhibit, titled Donny Jo Prevost, in the Drucker Family Pavilion of the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art.
