This month 176 pieces from Pablo Picasso’s personal collection come to the South via the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. From February 15 through May 19, visitors of the museum can admire sculptures, paintings, etchings and drawings taken from the Musée National Picasso, Paris – the largest and most significant collection of the Picasso’s work in the world. Some of the exhibition's highlights include the famous Man With a Guitar, and La Celestina.

"Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris" comes stateside thanks to the Paris museum’s two-year, $28 million dollar renovation – a project which sends the pieces to seven museums around the world.The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is one of only three museums in the U.S. to host the exhibition, and tour's the only stop on the East Coast.

In honor of the special event, Richmond hotels are offering dozens of specials and packages including discounted lodging and tickets to the museum while the exhibit is going on. The Jefferson Hotel, a five-star property is offering overnight lodging, Southern breakfast for two, valet parking and two tickets to the museum for $265 plus tax; the Holiday Inn Express Richmond-Downtown is throwing in shuttle service to the museum, in addition to breakfast for two and exhibition tickets for $109 plus tax.

    The failures and reverses which await men – and one after another sadden the brow of youth – add a dignity to the prospect of human life, which no Arcadian success would do. — Henry David Thoreau
