On May 1st, 2012 the Art Gallery of Ontario is proud to present Picasso – Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris. On April 24th, we invited members of the press, sponsors and key industry leaders to attend our Press Preview in Baillie Court. The following is a live blog account of the press preview inclusive of remarks from the AGO leadership team and other special guests. A full podcast of this session will be available on the AGO website within a few days time. We hope you enjoy following along at home / work.
