The Thinker: A CMA Blog
If you’ve been following our blog and came to the fabulous Summer Solstice Party, you may have noticed something amiss. Incredible music acts? Check. Gallery previews? Check. Revelers dancing the night away? Check. But where was the mysterious art installation?
The entire community is invited to join in the celebration of the museum’s newest gallery openings with our Going Global Family Day on Sunday, June 27, from 12:30 to 4 p.m.
While we’re loving every minute of it, hosting one of Cleveland’s biggest parties of the year takes a lot of time, resources, and people. We’ve compiled some quick numbers to show you just how much planning goes into our Summer Solstice Party. You may be surprised by what you learn!
Cleveland Museum of Art regulars should recognize the name Mark Reigelmän. The New York-based (and Cleveland-bred) artist created the memorable Wood-Pile piece at last year’s Summer Solstice celebration.
If you’ve been reading about our annual Parade the Circle event this year, you may know a little about our guests, La Troupe des Masques de Boni. These artists, musicians, and dancers are from Burkina Faso, on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert in Africa.
Want to make the fun of our Summer Solstice Party extend beyond the event itself? Then, you’ll want to take advantage of these partnerships with local restaurants and hotels that have generously agreed to help us make this a Solstice to remember.
Since May 27, we’ve been hosting artists from Boni, Burkina Faso. The artists will headline the 21st annual Parade the Circle event on Saturday, June 12, and be featured in the Going Global Family Day to open our newest galleries on Sunday, June 27.
