WOW! Picasso’s “Guernica” in 3D. via

Guernica is a painting by Pablo Picasso, depicting the bombing of Guernica, Basque Country, by German and Italian warplanes at the behest of the Spanish Nationalist forces, on April 26, 1937, during the Spanish Civil War. The Spanish Republican government commissioned Pablo Picasso to create a large mural for the Spanish display at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne (1937) Paris International Exposition in the 1937 World’s Fair in Paris.

Stephen Wiltshire, Savant

Stephen Wiltshire is the current blower of fine art minds at the Pratt Institute and pretty much everyone else in existence. With a quick fly-by via helicopter for a view of New Yorks skyline, Mr. Wiltshire is recreating the cityscape from memory on a 20-foot panoramic mural. Born with autism and limited communicative skills, his amazing photographic memory and knack for drawing shows a tremendous insight on the capabilities of the human mind. Catch him create his masterpiece in person at the Pratt Institute or via web cam, before this week ends.” Via
