On Monday, January 18, the Cleveland Museum of Art will open its doors for a daylong, free festival of art and music in celebration of Rev.

Did you get to know Gauguin at the Cleveland Museum of Art this fall? If you are not one of the more than 50,000 people who’ve already seen Paul Gauguin: Paris, 1889 (or if you just want to catch the show again), there’s still time. But you’ll need to hurry. The exhibition, co-organized by us with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, closes on Monday, January 18, and Cleveland is the only city in America where you can see it.
