Picasso Exhibit at the Met this Summer

One of the great things about Hoboken is the proximity to New York City and all of its cultural offerings. At the Metropolitan Museum of art the following Picasso exhibit is showing this summer. I highly recommend making the sojourn at least once to check out the extensive collection that the Met has of the prolific painter's work. Note: you can take pictures of the art since it is a public museum but you can not use flash in order to protect the art.

Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art
April 27, 2010–August 15, 2010
Special Exhibition Galleries, 2nd floor

"This landmark exhibition is the first to focus exclusively on works by Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881–1973) in the Museum's collection. It features three hundred works, including the Museum's complete holdings of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics by Picasso—never before seen in their entirety—as well as a selection of the artist's prints. The Museum's collection reflects the full breadth of the artist's multi–sided genius as it asserted itself over the course of his long and influential career."
