CLEVELAND (November 15, 2011) —The Cleveland Museum of Art presents the 18th annual Winter Lights Lantern Festival from December 2–31, 2011. The lanterns will be 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 and a component of University Circle Inc.'s Holiday CircleFest on Sunday, December 4.
CLEVELAND (December 16, 2011) – For the first time in museum history, the Cleveland Museum of Art is assembling distinguished business and government leaders in a symposium to discuss how Cleveland can learn and benefit from China's successful emergence as one of the world's leading economies in the 21st century; and how the expertise of the symposium's panelists can influence the development of an international business agenda for Northeast Ohio.
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.
