Picasso Goes to Heaven, like Groom's three-dimensional construction, Looking Along Broadway Towards Grace Church, is a zany, cartoonlike scene teeming with visual clutter. In this animated caricature, Grooms pokes fun at Picasso with the same gusto he used to describe the raucous exhilaration of urban life. Art is rarely so amusing. As Grooms says, "Humor is like boxing. You set 'em up. Then, whammo!"
