Support the Transformation

As we enter the final stretch of our ambitious renovation and expansion project, we are excited to announce the official call for the public's support. Transformation: The Campaign for the Cleveland Museum of Art asks all members of the museum family to reserve their place in our history by making a contribution that will help us to achieve our goal.

Take a moment to read Transformation Highlights below. For the reasons listed and more we ask you to be a part of it all and help complete the museum's Transformation!
