Pacita Abad loved people to see her paintings, and was adamant that her art should be for everyone. She wanted it incorporated into people's homes, accessories, dress and work environments; not just seen in galleries and museums. Consequently, Pacita made a point to exhibit her artwork in a wide variety of venues.

During her 30 year artistic career Pacita's paintings were shown in more than 200 museums, galleries and other sites in the U.S., Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa and Latin America, including 75 solo exhibitions. Pacita's work is now in museum, public, corporate and private art collections in over 70 countries.
