This week at CMA: Parade the Circle, Deconstructing the Beatles’ Revolver, and #CMAkatz
Check out these five must-attend events this week at the CMA!
|Parade the Circle
For 28 years, the Cleveland Museum of Art has been bringing this FREE signature summer event to Greater Cleveland. University Circle comes alive with color, music, and art for all ages. International and national guest artists join Greater Cleveland artists, families, schools, and community groups in a spectacular display of bright costumes, giant puppets, stilt dancers, handmade masks, and colorful floats. Circle Village, which includes activities, entertainment, and food, is presented by University Circle Inc.
Beatles expert Scott Freiman takes viewers into the studio as the Fab Four create their seminal 1966 album that some regard as the best ever. Freiman uses rare audio and video clips to dissect the recording of such classic tracks as “Eleanor Rigby,” “Yellow Submarine,” and “Tomorrow Never Knows.”
My Very First Art Class
