One of the most influential artists of all time, Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) created some of the most iconic art of the 20th century. The exhibition Picasso Black and White focuses on the artist’s lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette, through paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from 1904 to 1970. This evening is especially designed for teachers of history and visual art, as well as anyone interested in Picasso.

Evenings for Educators are professional-development programs that feature lively talks, tours of exhibitions, interactive workshops, and discussion designed for pre-K to 12th-grade teachers, curriculum specialists, and administrators. Each participant receives an illustrated teacher packet and a certificate of participation. Refreshments are served.

The MFAH Evenings for Educators program is endowed by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.

Generous underwriting is provided by Michael C. Linn in memory of his mother Patricia G. Linn.

All education programs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, receive endowment income from funds provided by Caroline Wiess Law; the National Endowment for the Humanities; the William Randolph Hearst Foundation; the Fondren Foundation; BMC Software, Inc.; the Wallace Foundation; the Louise Jarrett Moran Bequest; the Neal Myers and Ken Black Children’s Art Fund; the Favrot Fund; and Gifts in honor of Beth Schneider.
