Win a Pair of Tickets to See Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National PicassoWednesday, August 01, 2012
Have you heard about the Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario? It offers a rare insight into the life and work of Picasso and features pieces from his private collection. These masterpieces are temporarily being housed here in Toronto while the Musée National Picasso in Paris undergoes renovations. This is the last stop of the international tour which has included venues in Madrid, Abu Dhabi, Tokyo, Helsinki, Moscow and St. Petersburg, Seattle, Richmond, San Francisco and Sydney. The exhibition is on now until August 26, 2012.

I haven't been to the AGO in such a long time. My husband took the kids last February when they transformed it into the Kids Gallery of Ontario and they loved it. Hopefully, I'll be able to check it out before the Picasso exhibition comes to an end. If you would like to stop by the AGO to spend some time amongst the inspirational works of Picasso, I have a pair of tickets to give away. The tickets are only valid until August 12 and I will be announcing the winner on August 5 so you must be able to visit between August 6 and August 12. And, yes. The AGO will be open on Civic Monday, August 6 from 10 am to 4 pm! It would be a great day to view works of art that Picasso himself hand-picked to keep in his own private collection.
While you're there, AGO’s restaurant FRANK is offering Spanish-themed culinary delights, including Paella Tuesdays and half-price Tapas Wednesdays. ¡Delicioso!
For a chance to win a pair of tickets valid until August 12, please feel out the form below. Only one entry per person. Winner must reply to notification email within 24 hours. Tickets will be held under the winner's name at the information desk of the AGO.
