ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
PICASSO Art & Arena is an educational exhibition of graphic work and ceramics by the Spanish master showcasing 39 art pieces from the Fundación Picasso, Museo Casa Natal of Málaga, Spain. The exhibition includes original Picasso art pieces created between 1929 and 1961. The art was produced in different styles, techniques and media, providing unique insights into one of Picasso’s main themes: bullfighting.
PICASSO Art & Arena is a tribute to the Spanish cultural and artistic traditions that were introduced to Florida by Juan Ponce de León in 1513 and St. Augustine by Don Pedro Menéndez de Avilés in 1565. The exhibition is designed for families as well as the art connoisseur. The exhibition offers tours led by specially trained guides who interact with the audience. The show is presented in both English and Spanish. After our late morning arrival in the center of Historic Saint Augustine, our nation’s oldest city, we will visit Flagler’s White Marble Crypt at the church he built in a year housing high ceilings as in European Cathedrals and the largest pipe organ in the Southeast.
We will have time to stroll the Downtown area with its’ more than 80 shops along cobbled lanes shaded by moss-draped oaks. Scattered throughout blocks of historic landmarks , you may discover eclectic offerings from specialty gifts such as handmade candles, woven goods and wood crafts, to clothing and more...There are many choices for lunch on your own today in the old city including the famous Columbia Restaurant in the historic district or tuck into the “Prince of Wales” featured in Southern Living to enjoy a plate of crispy fish and chips and lift a pint of ale at this British pub run by expat Tony Woodward and his wife, Sharon.
