Viva Picasso!

Pablo Picasso turned 125 in 2006 and my colleague Ellen Hargrove and I┬ácelebrated by being Face to Face with Guernica! Inspired by my trip to Spain, where I got to see Guernica up close and personal, nine high school art students became the new faces of Guernica as they created a 15 foot wide, living reproduction of Picasso’s monumental canvas. This group of high school students presented “Guernica Live – A Lesson of Picasso’s Life and Art” to all of the 6th grade classes during a special assembly.
