Art Cart

On select Sunday afternoons the museum offers an Art Cart experience in the galleries. Staffed by the Art to Go team, Art Cart allows patrons to handle genuine works of art in an informal, intergenerational, and self-directed format. Art Cart experiences can be organized for groups, for a fee. Contact Karen Levinsky at 216-707-2467 to learn more.
