Madrid's Art Walk in New York: February 9th

Location: Grand Central's Vanderbilt Hall NYC
Time: 8:00AM Tuesday, February 9th

In the heart of NYC, from February 9th to Feb 12th Grand Central’s
Vandelbilt Hall will be hosting an exhibit on Madrid Unique Art Scene.

Stroll down the Path of Arts as if it was a sunny afternoon in Madrid.

This powerful exhibit consists of a curated selection of reproductions
to scale of the most iconic works currently exhibited at Madrid’s
mayor Museums: The Prado, The Thyssen-Bornemisza and The Reina Sofia.

The pieces represent some of the most important art collections in the
world and this exhibit brings New Yorkers a unique opportunity to peek
inside what Madrid’s art scene has to offer.

Although a reproduction, it is the first time Guernica,
the monumental anti-war mural painted by Pablo Picasso in 1937, will
be shown in New York City since it was returned to Spain by the Museum
of Modern Art in 1981.

Visitors will be able to pick their favorite pieces entering to win
Spanish Souvenirs from 8am to 8pm. Free admission.

We are certain, after this little taste of Madrid, New Yorkers will be
booking their next Spain-Bound vacation.
