Prolific like Picasso

I recently took a trip to Virginia to visit my brother, Sam. While there, we planned an adventure to see the Picasso art exhibit at the Richmond Museum of Fine Art. What an amazing show. The huge collection was on loan from the Musée National Picasso in Paris while it was being renovated. It was a variety of the mediums he worked in (which is everything). There were easily over 300 pieces in the show.

There were several photos of Picasso and his studio that I had never seen before. Here is one with him and his cat.

While we were in Richmond, I wanted to see Noah Scalin's outdoor skull piece "United Skull Of America" which has silhouettes of all 50 states arranged to portray a human skull. It was displayed at the Main Art X Gallery (which is outside of the Main Art Supply store at Main and Lombardy). Noah wasn't there, but it is a very artsy neighborhood and has a great Sushi place nearby.
