This Week at the CMA: First Look at Big: Photography from the Collection, Art Stories, and More

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

Wed, 6/1 and Fri, 6/3 
This Wed, 6/1 and Fri, 6/3 from 7:00-8:55 p.m., CMA presents the film Sweet Bean.  In this touching Japanese drama, an eccentric septuagenarian woman goes to work for a much younger baker and proceeds to revitalize his dorayaki pancake business by filling them with her homemade sweet bean paste
This weekly story time program combines children’s books, artworks from the CMA collection, and hands-on activities for children 2 to 5 and their favorite grown-up to participate in together. This week the theme “R is for Red” will be explored. 

Opening Sat, 6/4
Sat, 6/4 marks the opening of the new photography exhibition, BIG: Photographs from the Collection. BIG presents eight spectacular, monumentally scaled photographs made between 1986 and 2014, all but one of which are from the museum’s collection. The exhibition includes pieces by Andreas Gursky and Thomas Struth, who were part of the small group of German photographers who pioneered fine art explorations of commercial color printing and mounting processes and digital manipulation and enhancement. Additionally, large-scale photographs by Richard Barnes, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Clegg & Guttmann, Kevin Jerome Everson and Michael Loderstedt, Laura McPhee, and Vik Muniz will be making their museum debut.

This program on Sun, 6/5, from 1:30-3:45 p.m., features two of director and Ohioan, Robert Drew’s, most famous movies. The first follows Democratic presidential candidates John F. Kennedy and Hubert H. Humphrey during Wisconsin’s 1960 primary election. The second is a behind-the-scenes account of how the JFK administration responded to Governor George Wallace’s 1963 refusal to integrate the University of Alabama. For a list of all upcoming exhibitions and events at the Cleveland Museum of Art, see our online calendar.
This spectacular imperial tent, created for Muhammad Shah who ruled Iran from 1834 to 1848 during the Qajar dynasty, will now be on display through Sun, 8/21.
