At the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, curators create exhibits centered on single artists and periods of work.

MoMA attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers for a retrospective on Matisse last year. They’ve kept the museum open 24-hours a day for popular exhibits, like Christian Marclay’s “The Clock,” and sell out timed tickets to in-demand shows. 

Big shows draw tourists and attract big lines — at $25 for an adult ticket, a great exhibit can be very lucrative for the museum. 

This September, MoMA is showing an exhibit of Picasso’s sculptures. It’s not a medium typically associated with Picasso, who is best known for his oil paintings. 

MoMA’s chief curator of painting and sculpture, Ann Temkin, and chief communication officer, Kim Mitchell, say there’s a lot that goes into a high profile, expensive exhibit like this one. 

The Picasso sculpture show is years in the making and is expected to draw lots of viewers this fall and into the winter.
