TGIF! Get ready for weekend fun and games by trying a few of our art-inspired riddles. Look closely, each artwork holds the clue you need to solve the riddle. Riddles first, answers at the end.
1. What has hands but cannot clap?
Each year as the Lantern Festival Procession unfolds I stand in the crowd at the museum’s north door and share with those around me an anticipatory awe as we wait for the lighted dancers to emerge through the open doors into the darkened night. For me the lights spilling softly over the dancers, painting the air with their movement is magical.
Tonight, head to the museum for MIX: Metal, with activities, music, and demonstrations inspired by iron, gold, bronze, silver, and more in the Armor Court and the exhibition Myth and Mystique: Cleveland’s Gothic Table Fountain. For more metallic inspiration, check out these works of art in the museum’s galleries at MIX.
