Picasso to Hockney: Modern Art on Stage


CLICK HERE TO GIVE



It’s time to break a leg! For the first time, the McNay Art Museum is proudly devoting its entire 7,000-square-foot Tobin Exhibition Galleries in the Stieren Center for Exhibitions to exquisite designs for opera, ballet, theatre, and other performances all acquired by Robert Tobin. Picasso to Hockney: Modern Art on Stage will be on view at the McNay October 17 through December 29, 2019.


We would be honored if you would consider helping us rewrite history by joining us as a member of the Picasso to Hockney Host Committee. The exhibition features more than 100 works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Louise Nevelson, David Hockney, and Jim Dine. It highlights their brilliant collaborations with the most exciting writers, musicians, and dancers of their day: Jean Cocteau, Igor Stravinsky, Gertrude Stein, and George Balanchine. The McNay’s galleries will be transformed with a full-scale re-creation of Picasso’s celebrated Pulcinella set design. This stage centerpiece, along with many interactive moments, will provide a backdrop to showcase iconic treasures from the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts. 


With your contribution at one of the following levels, and with our sincere gratitude, you will enjoy…



For more information, please call Terri Landez, Revenue Department Assistant, at 210.805.1794.
