It’s one of the biggest exhibitions the Seattle Art Museum has ever attempted: a collection of 150 original Pablo Picassos, on loan from the Musée National Picasso in Paris for three months this fall. It’s Picasso’s personal stash, spanning the artist’s entire career (1900-1973), and people are already buying tickets to see it in person.

Picasso’s masterpieces will be on display from October 8 through January 17, but you can secure tickets in advance at picassoinseattle.org. SAM is waiving the online ticket fee, so adult tickets cost $23; you just have to select the date and time you plan to view the exhibit. To be honest, you don’t have to book tickets in advance—the paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs will be around for an entire season. But if you already know you want to go, why wait?
