Day 364 [S.A.M.]

Today the husband and I ventured into the city for a visit to SAM.
That's the Seattle Art Museum.
They are hosting a special exhibition of Picasso!
The first ever exhibit of Picasso in the US! 
It was quite something to take in...this is all work that is usually housed in the Musee National Picasso in Paris, which is currently under renovation. 
There is no photos allowed of the Picasso exhibit, but some were allowed in the main area of the museum.  
This particular piece is amazing!
It's made of 40,000 military dog tags.
Just stunning to see in real life.  Takes your breath away.
We had a lovely day taking in the art at the museum, strolling around the city, having dinner and then a hot drink after seeing the Picasso. 
Our last date for 2010 = a good one!
