Join DIA Assistant Curator, Modern European Art, Dorota Chudzicka for a conversation with journalist Hugh Eakin as he discusses his book PICASSO’S WAR: How Modern Art Came to America. This new book details the never-before-told story of how a single exhibition, years in the making, finally brought the 20th century’s most notorious artist U.S. acclaim, irrevocably changed American culture, and in doing so saved dozens of the twentieth century’s most enduring artworks from the Nazis.

Docent-led guided-gallery tours will be available, free of charge, after the conclusion of the program.
