Famed Spanish artists Francisco de Goya and Pablo Picasso became known for, among many things, their bull-fighting artwork. Next Tuesday, the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College will be discussing the history of Spain in Florida and both men’s influence on bullfighting as a symbol of the Iberian country, along with symbols of Spain in Florida.
“Goya, Picasso & the Heritage of Spain: Exploring Spanish Culture in Florida from 1513 to Today,” is a free discussion at the museum from 6:30-8:30 p.m. April 3. The talk was made possible by a Florida Humanities Council Community Project Grant. The PMA project was one of six in the state selected to receive funding out of 19 applicants.
