The Seattle Art Museum will host, Miró: The Experience of Seeing, the first in-depth exploration of Spanish artist Joan Miró’s late work to be shown in the United States. The exhibition draws from the stunning collection of the Museum Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, Spain’s leading museum of modern and contemporary art.

One of the great innovators of 20th-century art in Europe, Miró was a contemporary and friend of Picasso and created a striking universe throughout his six-decade career.

This exhibition brings together some 50 paintings and sculptures made between 1963 and 1981 that testify to Miró’s playful ingenuity and inventiveness. Whimsical figures unleash our imaginations. Found objects cast in bronze become fantastical creatures that converse with colorful canvases.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see Miró in its only stop on the West Coast. The exhibit will be featured at the SAM from February 13 – May 26, 2014.

KING 5 is proud to support the SAM and local art.
