I’m not sure why this is news to me, but the Meadows Museum is open until 9 p.m. on Thursdays and what’s more, admission is complimentary after 5 p.m. Swing by to see “The Spanish Gesture: Drawings From Murillo to Goya in the Hamburger Kunsthalle” exhibition, which closes Sunday, Aug. 31.
The exhibition is the first large-scale showing of drawings from the Kupferstichkabinett outside of Germany. It features 86 works created by artists from the 16th to 19th centuries, such as Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Juan de Valdés Leal, and Francisco Goya.
As an artist and lover of Spanish art, I’m super excited to go see it. If you see someone huddled in the corner geeking out, say hi.
(Update: It has been confirmed that admission to the exhibition is also free this evening. Parking in the museum’s parking garage is free all the time.)
