Picasso to Warhol continues a multi-year, multi-exhibition collaboration between the High and MoMA, which was launched in 2009 with Monet Water Lilies, the first in a series of six exhibitions. On view from June 4 through August 14, 2011, will be the second exhibition, Modern by Design. Following Picasso to Warhol, a second large-scale exhibition and two additional focus shows are in development for 2012 and 2013. The initiative builds on successful past collaborations between the High and MoMA that resulted in four exhibitions presented in Atlanta between 1997 and 2000. This project will extend ties between the institutions through professional exchanges, development of educational programs and publications and reciprocal admission benefits.
Picasso to Warhol is part of a series of exhibitions presented as part of a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. It is organized by Jodi Hauptman, MoMA Curator of Drawings, and Samantha Friedman, MoMA Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Drawings, in collaboration with David Brenneman, the High's Director of Collection and Exhibitions and Frances B. Bunzl Family Curator of European Art, and Michael Rooks, the High's Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. Picasso to Warhol will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.

Picasso to Warhol Teacher Resources
The fourteen artists featured in Picasso to Warhol expanded the very definition of art. Collectively, these artists have reconceived traditional genres and exploited new media. Common to all fourteen is a uniqueness born of saying no to the past and of reaching for something new, whether in material, strategy, or vision. It is this reach that makes these artists both masterly and modern.
