Through the Eyes of Picasso exhibition

This four-stop tour will lead students through the special exhibition Through the Eyes of Picasso. Students will explore works by Pablo Picasso, one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, alongside examples of the non-European art that fascinated him over the course of his long and active career. In making connections between Picasso and the art of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, students will recognize that artists can be influenced by a variety of individual, historical, and cultural factors.

The human body has been a focus of artistic exploration for artists of many time periods and cultural traditions. Please note that several works included in Through the Eyes of Picasso feature unclothed human figures.
