    Like many others, when I travel I look for museums and performing art theaters. On a recent trip to Amsterdam I visited the internationally-known Van Gogh Museum and the smaller Verzetsmuseum about the Dutch resistance during World War II. They were very different, but equally engaging. The cultural facilities found around the globe tell stories about their communities. I have many wonderful memories from past travels.

    I believe the same is true for many of our visitors. They sometimes generously express their gratitude for an exhibit or a performance. And, they come from many places. In April we installed a kiosk at the front desk of the Museum, asking visitors several questions, including where they are from. The following chart shows the results for April-June, with visitors from 29 states (coast to coast), Japan and England.

    The Rialto collects data through on-line ticket purchases. The following chart represents the first 6 months in 2017. Nearly half of our ticket purchasers are from Loveland; the next largest group is Fort Collins. The remainder represent 68 Colorado cities and 19 states.

    Lastly, Id like to share a tidbit from our comment box at the Museum left during the Blow Up exhibit:

    Never has hot air been so cool!

    The exhibit ends August 20th if you havent had a chance to see it!

    Picassos portraits of friends and family uncover the creative process as he moved between drawing from life and depicting caricatures, while employing his genius as a draughtsman through his quintessential expressive use of line. While the human face has a myriad of expressions and viewpoints, Picasso reduced the difficulty of depicting this complexity while simultaneously creating portraits with such emotional intensity they may be consecutively perceived as both highly personal statements and through the lens of a viewers own experience. It is interesting to note that in many of his portraits, the object is often depicted as a solitary figuredistanced, yet intimate in its detailed tenderness. This exhibition of 35 prints is an exploration not only of Picassos mastery of a wide variety of print media, but a continuation of a question posed by the artist himself, Are we to paint whats on the face, whats inside the face, or whats behind it?

    A prolific and tireless innovator of art forms, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) influenced the course of 20th-century art with unparalleled magnitude. Inspired by African and Iberian art and developments in the world around him, Picasso contributed significantly to a number of artistic movements, notably Cubism, Surrealism, Neoclassicism, and Expressionism. Along with Georges Braque, Picasso is recognized for pioneering Cubism in an attempt to reconcile three-dimensional space with the two-dimensional picture plane.

    The unfolding drama of Pablo Picassos life often made its way into his compositions, and at times, directed his artistic experimentation. Throughout his work, the artist engaged with important archetypes from literature, music, theater, fashion, and popular culture, as
