“Skip it”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Boring art, boring stories. My husband is an artist and I love art but we were seriously underwhelmed and in some cases disturbed by the poor quality. Not St Augustine's finest hour!

“had to check it out”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Was ok but it was from his early works. Not the art work ,which I thought that would be shown. But took the time to check it out.Could have been more of the art we think of when we think of Picasso.

“Small with limited artwork”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

this was a small exhibit....luckily we paid 50% because it is the last week. It's more of a Picasso history with explanations about the different period and the various types of work he did. No question about the importance of this great artist in the recent history of art but the art display was too limted.

“Outstanding art displayed with a great sense”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We visited the Picasso exhibit back in early spring 2013. It was highly educational and we spend a lot of time enjoying all the elements that the museum has put together. We were taken around by a wonderful docent who explained the intricacies of Picasso's painting. It was a great way to spend a day!

“Done right..it's fantastic”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Turns out Picasso's work might be hard to appreciate. A docent named Jacqueline Morfan (??) Took 20 minutes to give my wife and I a quick overview. Following her insightful intro to Picasso his approach to life and to art, the rest of the exhibit opened like a book. Without the incredible introduction..we would have left knowing that we had seen some 'Picasso's.. but not had near the understanding or appreciation. See this exhibit now..in St Aug..it may not have the same quality docents elsewhere.
