Artful Thursdays: A Parisian Salon

6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Law Building

Presented by Flamárt and friends. Organized by Raul Orlando Edwards, artistic director of Foundation of Modern Music and cofounder of Flamárt (Featuring Latin American Music and ARTs).

Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), born and raised in Spain, first traveled to Paris in 1900 as an impoverished aspiring artist. Late the following year he settled in that famous city, which was regarded as the center of the art world. By 1905, Picasso was a regular participant in the salon held by the Steins—noted author Gertrude and her brother, art critic Leo—who entertained the avant-garde of the visual, literary, and performing arts.

Offerering a peek into the salon, this soiree includes performing arts with French flair—and a nod to Picasso's Spanish origins. A reception follows the program. Guests are invited to register for great giveaways from Houston Public Radio and the MFAH.
