Art of the Stage: Picasso to Hockney

Art of the Stage: Picasso to Hockney

Jan. 25, 2020 — May. 10, 2020

The Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg is the first museum in the country to host this exhibition culled from the McNay Art Museum's prestigious Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts since it closed December 29, 2019 at the McNay in San Antonio, Texas. The traveling exhibition features a stunning variety of over 100 scene, costume, stage and program designs created by noted artists from the nineteenth century to the present day. The works of artists presented in the exhibition, such as Henri Mattise, Natalia Goncharova, Pablo Picasso, David Hockney,Robert Indiana,and Lesley Dill, innovated the productions of some of the world's most famous opera and ballet productions. To truly bring the art of the stage to life, the MFA is collaborating with several local and national arts organizations to present live performances on a theater built inside the gallery, as well as performance spaces throughout the museum. The museum will be animated with performances of classical music, opera, dance, theater and poetry throughout the run of the exhibition, along with special lectures and film screenings.
