Cézanneand beyond comes to Philly

Well, this post will get us back on the art track!
My wife and I are members of the Philadelphia Art Museum. For less than $10 a month we have a family membership which gets us admission to the museum, special members tickets to exhibitions and of course a discount in the gift shops!
If we weren't members we probably would miss so many wonderful exhibitions.
Opening on February 26th is "Cézanne and Beyond". An exhibition about the importance of Cézanne in France and on the art world.
From the museums website:
This exhibition features forty paintings and twenty watercolors and drawings by Cézanne, displayed alongside works by several artists for whom Cézanne has been a central inspiration and whose work reflects, both visually and poetically, Cézanne’s extraordinary legacy. These artists include Max Beckmann, Georges Braque, Pierre Bonnard, Charles Demuth, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Fernand Léger, Brice Marden, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Giorgio Morandi, Pablo Picasso, Liubov Popova, and Jeff Wall.

So whether you've never been to the Philadelphia Museum of Art or have been to the museum a hundred times, there is always something wonderful and enlightening to see, feel and enjoy. It is a great way to expand your horizons and give back to the local arts community.
