Events and Programs
Solstice, the museum’s annual summer music festival and late-night bash, is right around the corner. In the spirit of keeping things jumping all night long, we are driving attention to local street cuisine by inviting some of the city’s best food trucks onto the premises.
If you’ve visited Wade Oval in recent weeks, you may have noticed the large white tent that took up residence next to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History in late April. This is the Cleveland Museum of Art’s parade workshop tent, an annual fixture that serves as a home base for guest artists, community groups, and families and individuals participating in Parade the Circle.
As a museum visitor, have you ever wondered if your views are used in the process of developing programming? How exactly does the museum know what the community wants to learn and see? Perhaps it’s the luck of the draw or perhaps it’s the result of something called an audience researcher.
The museum will host an innovative dialogue on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 to explore how Cleveland can benefit from China’s emergence as one of the world’s leading economies. A distinguished panel of regional and national business, academic, journalism, and government leaders whose organizations have significant ties with China will offer insights for The Art of Reinvention: China, Ohio, and the New Global Economy.
The museumpresents the 18th annual Winter Lights Lantern Festival on view now through January 16. The lanterns are displayed outside on Wade Oval, inside the museum, and for the first time, on the new east wing terrace. Inspired by cross-cultural ceremonial lighting traditions, the community arts festival is a seasonal museum celebration.
As our thermostats drop and the end of daylight savings time approaches, the festive colors and sounds and the jubilant community atmosphere of June’s Parade the Circle may seem like distant memories.
