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.

The Cosgroves are from the Cleveland neighborhood of West Park, while the Ladebues were in from Pittsburgh to visit and catch the show.

Experience a whole new world on Jan. 8 with Evan Ziporyn and Gamelan Galak Tika

Imagine an orchestra of pitched percussion instruments. The exotic rhythms are created with a mix of gongs, metallophones, zithers, xylophones and drums. The sound evokes the rich culture of Indonesia, where this type of ensemble is integral to the court and sacred music of the nation. At the same time, the sights are a feast for the eyes, as the performers don brightly colored robes, flowers and head wraps. That’s the experience the CMA is presenting when it brings Evan Ziporyn to town on Friday, January 8, along with his 30-member Gamelan Galak Tika.
