For ages 55+--ArtMatters: Pablo Picasso--Whether you swear by him or at him, Picasso was undeniably the most successful and influential artist of the 20th century. He was certainly the most influential artist since Leonardo Da Vinci. He was able to change his style, so quickly, so completely, that he seemed like many different artists. You can’t like it all, he made over 50,000 works of art. But there will be one era, one style, even a single painting, that will make you say; “I didn’t know Picasso did that. I love that.” Join us as we explore the many styles, expressions, loves and lives of the man at the heart of modern art. ArtMatters is an art awareness program offering live presentations designed to bring art and the museum experience to communities.
