Posted on October 1, 2012 by ClevelandArt

The community celebration of the Ames Family Atrium on Oct. 28 is a time for everyone to come together to mark this important milestone in the life of the museum’s expansion and renovation project.

Each spring, high school students from the Museum Ambassadors program facilitate a Family and Community Day for the public. Hailing from all corners of the Cleveland area, these 10th-12th graders create projects summarizing their experiences at the museum during the past school year.

Go on a hunt through our galleries for paintings that have snow. Each painting can spark fun discussion about the content and context of the work. For older children, the discussion could evolve into a research project about the artist.
