To commemorate the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated small screen favorite’s second season, National Geographic swung open it’s pop art-decorated doors for a one-of-a-kind #GeniusPicasso experiential lab in high-end atmospheric NYC SoHo neighborhood.

Antonio Banderas, Alex Rich, Samantha Colley, Poppy Delevigne, immersed attendees in the electric hues of Picasso’s paintbrush with larger-than-life RadicalMedia installations, interactive spaces, and stunning backdrops. The artistic area dedicated to the 10-episode series exploring the life of Picasso is full of unique picturesque moments designed to inspire visitors to create personalized masterpieces.
