Editors Please Note

• The Philadelphia Museum of Art will be the only venue in the world for Cézanne and Beyond (February 26 – May 17, 2009). Through work by Cézanne and 18 artists of later generations, it surveys the impact and influence of the French painter whom Picasso described as “The father of us all.”

• The Museum is also organizing the exhibition that will represent the United States at the 53rd Venice Biennale (June 7-November 22, 2009). Bruce Nauman: Topological Gardens will be one of the most ambitious presentations of his work to date and will explore a wide range of themes that reappear in the practice of this highly innovative artist.

• The entire Museum will be open on holiday Mondays, including Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 19), Presidents Day (February 16), Memorial Day (May 25), Labor Day (September 7) and Columbus Day (October 12).
