Artwork from the Picasso poster campaign Artwork from the Picasso poster campaign Join us at the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight on Wednesday 22 June from 5pm for an exclusive opportunity to view Picasso linocuts, ground-breaking prints on loan to the Gallery from the British Museum, before the exhibition opens to the public on Friday 24 June 2016. The event, which runs from 5 to 8pm on Wednesday 22 June, invites guests to be the first to see the exhibition of some of Picasso’s most remarkable prints, as well as the chance to enjoy evocative classical Spanish guitar performed by the Liverpool Guitar Society. Sandra Penketh, Director of Art Galleries said: “To be exhibiting work by an artist of the calibre of Pablo Picasso is certainly something worth celebrating. An evening of art and themed musical performances, open to the public for free, is a fitting way to launch this outstanding exhibition. “Guests will also have another opportunity to explore our newly opened South End galleries, seeing how a major refurbishment project, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, has breathed new life into the collections.” All are welcome, so bring your friends and family.  Refreshments will be available from the Gallery café and souvenirs from the ground floor shop.  To find out more about the free events linked to the exhibition sign up to receive our exhibitions newsletter. Exhibition runs until 8 January 2017, free entry.
