GLAXOSMITHKLINE PARTNERS WITH THE PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART TO PRESENT PICASSO AND THE AVANT- GARDE IN PARIS

GlaxoSmithKline believes in sponsoring programs that enrich the lives of its employees and the community at-large. For this reason, we are pleased to support the world-class Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris exhibition, which will be seen only in Philadelphia.

This breathtaking exhibition represents many of Picasso’s most bold and beautiful paintings and places them in the company of the great talents who joined with him in making the city of Paris the world capital of modern art in the early 20th century. We believe the exhibition will offer visitors from across the region and beyond an exciting experience, exploring the stunning innovations of Picasso and his contemporaries Fernand Léger, Marc Chagall and others, who contributed to shape the modern era.

GlaxoSmithKline continues to support the arts and cultural education through the sponsorship of such exhibitions as Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris.

GlaxoSmithKline – one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies – is committed to improving the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer. For further information please visit us.gsk.com
