CMA's Robin VanLear, Artistic Director Community Arts on Winter Lights Lantern Festival 2016

Posted on December 2, 2016 by cmoore

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.

On View Now: Piero di Cosimo: A Hunting Scene

Posted on November 9, 2016 by cmoore

Piero di Cosimo’s A Hunting Scene, a generous loan from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is on view at the CMA through Tues, Jan 31, 2017. 

Piero di Cosimo (1462–1522) was born in Florence, the son of a goldsmith. He apprenticed in the studio of the artist Cosimo Rosselli (1439–1507) for whom he assisted in painting the Sistine Chapel in 1481–82. Piero was an older contemporary of Michelangelo, but about a decade younger than Leonardo, who would have much influence on the artist later in his career.
