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.

European Paintings and Sculpture Curator Jon Seydl and Cleveland Orchestra Assistant Conductor James Feddeck discuss a few works in our galleries that connect to the chamber music concert series, Italian Masterworks. This collaboration will bring The Cleveland Orchestra to play in the museum’s Gartner Auditorium for the first time. In this five-video series, the two scholars ponder the connections between the painters and composers, the meanings of the works they created, and what these works might tell us about the times in which they lived.
