This engaging exhibition in the Education Gallery invited viewers to study artists and their communities in early 20th century Paris.

Using a map, visitors “strolled” through the Parisian neighborhoods of Montparnasse and Montmartre, observing the elements necessary to create and sustain thriving artistic communities. By examining this specific time of Paris in 1905 through photographs and text, visitors gained a more complete understanding of how the artists and patrons from the Matisse, Picasso, and the School of Paris exhibition met, lived, and interacted.
