Contest: Win passes to see Picasso at the AGO

Pablo Picasso is a big deal. Widely recognized as one of the seminal figures of 20th century art, the Spanish painter and sculptor helped re-shape our understanding of art and is known as a co-founder of the Cubist movement. The Art Gallery of Ontario is currently hosting an exhibition from the Musee National Picasso in Paris which features Picasso's private works--that is, pieces which he held for himself. The AGO is the only Canadian venue for the international tour, and includes portraits of his wives and mistresses. Truly, the exhibit is a rare glimpse into the life and mind of an artistic genius.

The AGO is generously offering a 3 pairs of passes to this exhibition, which is on now.


3 lucky art fans will receive two passes each to Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musee National Picasso (to be redeemed prior to August 12th) at the Art Gallery of Ontario.


To win, just answer the following question: In what year did Pablo Picasso die?

The first 3 correct commenters win the passes. Please make sure to include a valid email address in the comment form "Email Address" field so that we can contact you if you're a winner.


You must be a Toronto-area resident to win. Only one comment and answer per person. If you include multiple answers or post multiple comments you will be disqualified, and winners must pick up their own tickets.


This contest is now closed. Winners will be contacted shortly.
