Let's see the exhibit: "Picasso and Chicago" at the Art Institute.
"A century ago, in 1913, the Art Institute of Chicago became the first art museum in the country to present the work of a young Spaniard who would become the preeminent artist of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso. This February the museum celebrates the special 100-year relationship between Picasso and Chicago by bringing together over 250 of the finest examples of the artist’s paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, and ceramics from private collections in the city, as well as from the museum’s collection, for the first large-scale Picasso exhibition organized by the museum in almost 30 years.
Featuring such diverse and significant works from the museum’s own exceptional holdings and from collections throughout the city, Picasso and Chicago not only charts the full gamut of Picasso’s artistic career but also chronicles the growth of Chicago as a place for modern art and the storied moments of overlap that have contributed to the vibrant interest in Picasso from 1913 to today."
Adults: $18.00 Students and Seniors: $12.00 Children under 14: Free* Members are always free.
To keep up with the Spanish theme, we could go for some tapas afterwards, for example at the Mercad a la Planxa (http://mercatchicago.com/) nearby (I think reservations might be helpful, but we can do that closer to the date and once we know how many people are interested).
