Demoiselles d'Avignon at 100

Though I am not a huge fan of Pablo Picasso's work, he certainly painted some masterpieces. "Demoiselles d'Avignon" is one.

I am lucky to live a subway ride away from Museum of Modern Art, in New York, where Demoiselles d'Avignon and hundreds (thousands?) of other modern art masterpieces reside.

MoMA is celebrating the centennial of Demoiselles d'Avignon in a series of performances and talks. Demoiselles d'Avignon at 100 runs from May 9, 2007, through August 27, 2007, at MoMA, 11 West 53 Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues (212-708-9400).

While you are there, be sure to see some of the other magnificent works by van Gogh, Matisse, Leger, Miro, Mondrian, Johns and all of the rest of the world's foremost modern-era artists.
