This Week at the CMA: MIX: Pharaoh, New Exhibition Openings, and More

Check out these five must-attend events this week at the CMA!

Fri, 4/1
This Friday, check out MIX at CMA: Pharaoh to explore the blockbuster exhibition Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt and uncover the stories behind ancient Egypt’s legendary rulers through stunning objects from the vast Egyptian holdings of the British Museum. Plus, enjoy a pop-up restaurant by Provenance in the atrium with Egyptian-inspired cuisine.
Opening this coming Sunday, this centennial exhibition celebrates the close friendship between two of the most significant American artists of the postwar era: Eva Hesse (1936–1970) and Sol LeWitt (1928–2007). Illuminating the crucial impact of their friendship on both their art and lives, this show features many works that have not been publicly exhibited for decades.
Symposium: Graphic Novels/Novel Architecture
Fri, 4/1

This Friday, join Kent State University’s College of Architecture & Environmental Design in the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Gartner Auditorium for a major symposium exploring productive relationships between comics and architecture.
Open now, this stunning show traces the history of the fruit and flower print from its beginnings as simple black-and-white woodcuts in late 15th-century herbals to the splendors of 19th-century color prints and the lavish publications of botanists Dr. Robert Thornton and Pierre Joseph Redouté.


Centennial Loans: Luba mask
Mon, 6/13 
In celebration of its centennial year, the Cleveland Museum of Art is marking its anniversary with a series of exceptional loans from select collections around the world. On view now, visitors can check out this striking face mask, an undisputed masterwork of the Luba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This mask is one of more than 2,000 African works gifted to the Seattle Art Museum by Cleveland native Katherine Coryton White in 1980.
