Good news for the worrywarts concerned about getting their hands on tickets to SAM’s upcoming Picasso show: the landmark exhibit is going to stick around town longer than anticipated. The collection of 150 works will be on view through January 17, 2011, one week later than first planned.

The exhibit is expected draw legions of art enthusiasts from across the country, as Seattle is the first—and one of only a few—stops in the U.S. before the retrospective hits the international circuit. Needless to say, tickets will be a hot commodity.

Speaking of, tickets for the show, which opens October 8, go on sale August 1, though SAM members and recipients of SAM’s enewsletter get first dibs—they’ll have the chance to purchase them July 1. More details on securing yours here.
