You can come to the Norton Simon Museum for A Night in Focus, an evening looking at one of the world’s most revered artists, Francisco de Goya. The evening begins with an overview by Chief Curator Carol Togneri of the art of Goya in the Norton Simon’s collections, with a spotlight on Don Pedro, Duque de Osuna, on loan from The Frick Collection.

Curator Leah Lehmbeck follows by speaking about the exhibition Unflinching Vision: Goya’s Rare Prints, which demonstrates the artist’s mastery of printmaking and his ability to represent the spirit of his time.

Offered throughout the evening are art-making activities that allow artists of all ages to create original works of art. A special wine and tapas menu is available at the café.
