Everyone knows Picasso was a great painter--but fewer people know his sculpture work. Well if you want to take a look at it, there's an exhibition going on at the MOMA right now, filled with examples of this underappreciated part of his artistic career. It's just one of many great exhibitions happening this fall in museums around New York City.
