6. Check out Picasso, Matisse and Chagall at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center

Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Marc Chagall were among the trailblazers of their time, an era defined by artistic leaps in freedom from academia constraints. This private collection reinforces the sense of time that was 1920’s Paris and creates for the eye a feast of line play and compositional delight. Visitors to the exhibition will explore the imagery of expansive subjects ranging from the human body to family members and the Bible in a collection of lithographs, etchings, linocuts, and ceramics by these renowned artists. “This exhibit has not been seen by the public in over eight years,” says Liz Szabo, visual arts curator of the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. “Pueblo is fortunate to have something so spectacular within their reach.”

7. Visit the Buell Children’s Museum

This is the last weekend to check out the H20 Picasso exhibit! (Next week the Children’s Museum will be closed while they set up their new exhibit!)

Get your creative juices flowing with Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and more with STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math) activities. Hands-on educational experiences dive off of important artworks, all with the theme of water.

8.  Take a Hike (or bike ride) at the Nature Center
