Pablo Picasso is credited with saying, “Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.” Such poetry! Art lends us the ability to view our current situations in new ways and to understand and interpret our experiences. This is the kind of thing we need more of today. For this reason, Metrolink invites you to virtually connect with the rich history and expansive community of art in celebration of International Museum Day!
