Just 5 more days to see  Picasso Art & Arena at the newly renovated St. Augustine Visitor Center.  The collection is on display for the first time in the United States and consists of graphic art, illustrated books and ceramics by Pablo Picasso.

Picasso had an answer for those who find modern art difficult to understand:  “The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I take pictures that do?”

Another of his quotes: “It took me four months to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

Much of this exhibit centers on the theme of bullfighting, one of Picasso’s favorite sports.  The displays are beautifully arranged and suitable for families as well as for the art connoisseur.  What a wonderful opportunity to see the works of one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century!

If you go:  The St. Augustine Visitor Center is located at 10 W. Castillo Drive.  Exhibition hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm through Sunday, August 11, 2013.  There is a small entrance fee.  For more information, call 904.825.1000.
