Friday, August 8, 2014, 11:30 a.m.
The Estée and Joseph H. Lauder Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 11, fifth floor
Picasso’s muse, Marie Therese Walter, inspired the artist to explore sculpture in new and innovative ways. Join us to explore the interrelationship of painting and sculpture that emerged in Picasso’s work during the 1930s and 1940s, and to experiment with hands-on drawing and sculpting exercises.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
