Culture Buzz: Picasso Ceramics Exhibit at Arlington Museum of Art

The newest “Culture Buzz” segment on MyArlingtonTV takes a journey to the Arlington Museum of Art in Downtown for its winter blockbuster exhibit, Pablo Picasso: Ceramics, featuring more than 40 ceramics by renowned artist Pablo Picasso.

The exhibit opened to the public on November 12, 2016 and will be on display at the museum through Sunday, February 12, 2017.

Internationally famed for his paintings, sculpture, and graphics, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was long intrigued by ceramics. After seeing the works of the Madoura potters at a crafts fair in 1946, Picasso negotiated with Georges and Suzanne Ramie, who operated the studio, to provide him with the opportunity to work with ceramics.

The exhibit was curated by Gerald Nordland, noted author and independent curator, and former Director of the San Francisco Art Museum, The Milwaukee Art Museum, The Washington (D.C.) Gallery of Modern Art, and the Wight Gallery, UCLA. It was funded in part by a grant from the Arlington Cultural Tourism Council.
