Opening on Sunday, November 10, Disembodied: Portrait Miniatures and Their Contemporary Relatives reawakens the spirit of these works, which are removed by hundreds of years from the hands into which they were originally placed.
Fragments of the Invisible marks the American debut of 34 works of Central African art acquired in 2010 by the Cleveland Museum of Art from the Belgian couple René and Odette Delenne. Many of the works that make up this transformative acquisition have never before been published nor displayed, until the exhibition opens on Sunday, October 27, 2013.
One quick visit to the current exhibition at the CMA, Less is More: Minimal Prints, will illustrate the power behind such seemingly straight-forward art and explain how that initial reaction is not far from what was intended. The museum’s Curator of Prints, Jane Glaubinger, provides us with some explanatory background on this exhibition and its featured artists.
Praxiteles: The Cleveland Apollo is an in-depth examination of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s ancient bronze sculpture, a figure known since antiquity as Apollo Sauroktonos, or Apollo the Lizard-Slayer. The masterwork will be showcased alongside two ancient Roman marble copies, one on loan from the Louvre Museum, Paris, France and the other from the Liverpool World Museum. This is noteworthy since all three sculptures have never been displayed together before.

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.
It's official: More than 50,000 people have visited the Cleveland Museum of Art to see Paul Gauguin: Paris, 1889.
In recognition of this milestone, Michael, Danielle and Jaden Cosgrove, along with their guests Bill and Sandy Ladebue, received free tickets to the exhibition, as well as a $50 gift certificate to a local French restaurant. The Cosgroves are from the Cleveland neighborhood of West Park, while the Ladebues were in from Pittsburgh to visit and catch the show.
