Don't Miss the Picasso Exhibition!

We’re kicking off our 20th anniversary with Picasso. Figures, an exhibition from the incomparable collection of the Musée national Picasso-Paris. The exhibition offers an in-depth look at Pablo Picasso’s career-long fascination with the human figure as a means of expressing a range of subjects and emotions. Featuring approximately 75 paintings, works on paper, and sculptures, Picasso. Figures makes its exclusive U.S. appearance at the Frist through May 2.

Advance timed entry tickets are required and include admission into all exhibitions on view the day of your visit.
