[Edmonia Lewis is] “…the most interesting artist working in Europe…She has great natural genius, originality, earnestness, and simple genuine taste.”
--Henry T. Tuckerman, Book of the Artists (1867, pp. 603-04)
It’s great when our famous works get to meet famous people. Actors Bill and Susan Hayes made sure that they had time to visit the Cleveland Museum of Art during their media tour on October 20. Married for 35 years, the couple has played Doug and Julie Williams on NBC’s “Days of our Lives” for almost as long.
If the one constant in life is change it certainly holds true that at the Cleveland Museum of Art there is always something new to see, particularly now during the exciting expansion project. One of the museum’s goals is to create exhibitions and collections that are relevant and inspirational to its patrons and to do so in a way that makes each visit to the museum fresh and vibrant.
Several works from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s renowned collection are spending the summer on tour. If you and your family have travel plans, take your hometown pride to museums worldwide to see art on loan from our permanent collection.

Cleveland weather can change dramatically from one week to the next. We're great to visit no matter the weather. The Cleveland Museum of Art is the place for you—indoors, expansive and free. What is there for your family to do? Look for signs of spring through our collection.
Take a look at these and check back next week for the answers for which work they come from.
