It certainly is a treat for Virginians to enjoy art from the Musee National Picasso in Paris at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. The only East Coast venue during its seven-city international tour, it will remain on display daily through May 15th. Even if Picasso isn't a favorite, the opportunity to see his work this close to home is one my family plans to take advantage of as we enjoy yet another VMFA exhibit.
